Feeding the Hungry Along the Shoreline

blue dark
All our heartfelt thanks to those in our community who work so hard to help feed our neighbors in need.


Every year the employees of Roto Frank of America, based in Chester, select a charity to support.  This year we are happy to announce they chose The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries.

So far they have held a Pancake Breakfast, a Bake Sale, and a Taco Lunch/Food Drive, where food donations served as admissions.  Upcoming events include 50-50 raffles, food drive competitions, and other breakfast/lunch sales. Employees may also give contributions via payroll deductions.  Campaign progress is tracked on a special "soup ladle thermometer", updated monthly and displayed in the employee cafeteria.  The company also designs an annual t-shirt for every employee, who are encouraged to wear them on Friday for "Charity T-Shirt Day".  All their efforts seem to be working!  To date, the campaign has raised more than $1,000 and 100 pounds of non-perishable food, with many months yet to go.


At the end of December, the Charitable Committee will present SSKP with a check for all the financial donations collected during the year.  Non-perishable food donations are brought to SSKP food pantries continuously throughout the year.


"We are so grateful to all the employees of Roto Frank for supporting The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries," said Patty Dowling, Executive Director.  "Their year-long effort is an inspiration, and shows their caring and commitment to helping others in need."
