Jackson Cupboard receives $4,000 grant

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Last week, Jackson Cupboard was awarded a $4,000 grant from the Rotary Club of Jackson Hole. Jackson Cupboard Board Chair Mike Randall accepted a check from the Rotary Club at their weekly Tuesday lunch meeting last week. Randall thanked the Rotarians for their service in the community and for the grant, pointing out that as an all-volunteer organization that uses space donated by St. John’s Church, the Jackson Cupboard spends 97 percent of funds raised on food. Rotary President Clare Payne-Symmons recognized the very important work done by the Jackson Cupboard in helping the hungry in our community and explained that $2,000 of the grant came directly from the club. The other $2,000 was a matching grant by Rotary District 5440, to which the Jackson club belongs, and which includes Rotary Clubs in Wyoming, Montana, Colorado and Nebraska. A portion of the contributions made by Rotarians to Rotary International comes back to their home club in the form of grants such as this one. *Feature Photo: Rotary President Clare Payne-Symmons, Jackson Cupboard Board President Mike Randall and Paul Vogelheim, who is both a Jackson Cupboard board member and Rotarian. h/t Rotary Club of Jackson Hole /
