Wednesday, July 6th at the Little Falls Diamond Dawgs Baseball Game – start time of the first game – 5:00 pm for a double header

Courtesy of Travis Heiser, owner of the Little Falls Diamond Dawgs and the Little Falls Rotary Club, free admission to the games that night will be given to attendees making donations to the Food Pantry, Personal Care Pantry, or Animal Shelters.

There will be a Rotary table to greet attendees and accept donations that will be set up and staffed by Rotarians from 4:45 to 6:15 that night.

Items most requested for the Food Pantry are pasta, cereals, peanut butter, soups, tuna, and other non-perishables.

For the Personal Care Pantry, the items include toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, razors, laundry detergent, feminine hygiene products, and toilet paper.

For the Animal Shelters, cat and dog foods, kitty litter, and animal treats.

Cash donations are also being accepted and will be split among the groups being assisted.

Little Falls in Herkimer County, like many communities throughout the world during the global pandemic, have found resources helping others to be stretched thin. This endeavor will help to restock the pantries to assist others.

Since they began as a club in 1958, tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of working hours have gone into making Little Falls a better place to live, work, and play. We partner frequently with other organizations to help them succeed with their festivals and projects and look forward to continuing to do so. Members of Little Falls Rotary sponsor youth sports, help boys and girls scout troops in our area, and educate themselves and members of the community on pertinent topics, such as health concerns, growth of the community, and do regular upkeep and improvements at the Rotary Parks along the canal.

Rotary members throughout the world take action to make communities better. They contribute their time, energy, and passion to carry out meaningful and sustainable projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, help mothers and children, support education, and grow local economies.

Rotary’s top priority is the global eradication of polio. Rotary launched its polio immunization program, PolioPlus, in 1985 and in 1988 became a leading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. As Rotarians, we are pleased to say that currently Polio only remains a threat in two countries of the world, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The Little Falls Rotary Club will be promoting the Eradication of Polio again this year in October.
