Food drive
a success
PUTNAM — As far as northeastern Connecticut goes, please mark us down for “plays/works well with others.”
The Putnam Rotary Club’s annual Good Friday Food Drive was a resounding success. Volunteers from the Putnam Rotary Club, the Putnam Rotary Club’s Interact Club, the Putnam Rotary Club’s Rotaract Club, the Putnam Lions Club, the Putnam Lions Club Leos Club and the Putnam Lodge of Elks all stood fast in some chilly windswept weather to collect nonperishables and donations to benefit Daily Bread. A steady stream of cars filled almost two vans with food and the money box with checks and cash totaling $6,093, according to Karen Osbrey, Rotarian and head of the Interfaith Human Services of Putnam.
In addition to the nonperishables, Rotary Club Interact advisor Roberta Rocchetti said a local bakery dropped off bread and a local farm dropped off eggs.  Osbrey said 1,320 pounds of food were donated. There was no drive in 2020. This year’s drive raised less money but saw more food donated.
