Rochester NH Rotary asks that you join the Rochester Opera House in our first ever Pack the House event. Our goal is to fill all 750 seats in the historic theater with a bag of food or funds to benefit four local hunger relief organizations: SHARE Fund Food PantryGatherGrace Community Church Food Pantry, & End 68 Hours of HungerAll food and monetary donations will be divided equally among these Rochester organizations, helping them continue their incredible work and outreach in our own backyard through food pantries, mobile markets, home delivery, and more.

Join forces with Rochester Opera House as we near the fall and winter months to bring our community together and PACK THE HOUSE so our neighbors in need can go to bed full. Pack the House will be held October 9 from 9AM to 3PM.

Email Rotary  for more information or to help out!
