(L-R) Decorah Rotary Club Pork Chop Committee members Melissa Fuhrmann, Brecka Putnam, and Shannon Duncan presenting a check to Steve Zittergruen, Vice President of the Decorah Community Food Pantry
The Decorah Rotary Club (DRC) was recently honored to donate over $700 in tips from pork shop sales at the 2022 Winneshiek County Fair and 2022 Nordic Fest to the Decorah Community Food Pantry (DCFP). Steve Zittergruen, Board of Directors Vice President for DCFP, gave an excellent presentation about the organization at the most recent Decorah Rotary After Hours meeting. DRC members who served on this year's pork chop committee formally presented the Rotary donation at this meeting.
The DCFP appreciates all donations but especially so during this recent year. "There has been a tremendous uptick [in demand] this year over last. Almost 50 percent more people need our services," said Zittergruen. "A lot of people who were struggling to get by but getting by are now coming through our doors."
The DRC extends its sincere thanks to all of its pork chop booth customers for their generous tips and for making this donation possible.
