Murray Rotarians Gene Schanbacher, Pete Lancaster, Roger Reichmuth and Yvette Pyle make their food donation to Needline as part of the WKMS Feeding Hungry Minds project from this past fall.

Rotary Clubs around the region partnered with Murray State's public radio station, WKMS, to contribute over 1,000 pounds of food to community food banks, one for each pledge the station received in Fall 2013. 

WKMS Development Director Asia Burnett says, “We’re so thankful to Rotarians for getting involved, adding impact to our listeners’ generosity - not only supporting indispensable public radio programming, but providing food to area food banks as well. Feeding minds and feeding homes – that’s a wonderful thing - and just one of the many ways Murray Rotary does good in our community.”

Thanks go to Roger Reichmuth, Assistant Governor for Rotary Clubs in our area and to participating Clubs in Cadiz, Clinton, Fulton, Hickman, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, Marshall, Mayfield, Metropolis, Murray, Paris, Paducah Rotaract, and Princeton for making this project possible.

The Murray Rotary Club plans to continue donating even more food to Needline in the coming weeks.
