Pittsburg Rotary Give $8,000 To Lord's Diner

Updated:

    You could say it was a birthday present. The Rotary Club of Pittsburg" celebrated 101 years Tuesday and The Lord's Diner in Pittsburg celebrated one year of operation. 
        As part of a celebration, the Rotary Club gave the soup kitchen a check for $8,000 and also announced a new program called "Give 365-Squared."
    That program asks folks to give enough money to make sure everyone is fed every day the facility is open, which is 7 days a week.
    "It actually started to combat hunger in Pittsburg but I think it  does way more than that," said volunteer Karan Mccormick.  "I really think it helps build relationships, not only those of us working with our co-workers. But it also builds relationships with the guest that walk through the door."
    "We take care of so many causes but we felt like we wanted one to have a dramatic impact on the community," said Joe Dellasega with the Lord's Diner Advisory Council. "So we put our heads together and that was the idea of the Lord's Diner." 
    Program organizers say the cost of feeding one person for one day is about $2.50
