AURORA — They asked, and the community gave.

The Aurora Rotary Club and Aurora Kiwanis Club have donated $10,000 each to the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry.

Rotary President Charlie Zine presented pantry Executive Director Marilyn Weisner with a check for $10,001 at a Rotary meeting on Monday at America’s Historic Roundhouse.

“I want to thank you all so much for this important donation,” Weisner said.

The service organization donations are part of a larger push to fund a new pantry distribution center. If the pantry can raise $425,000 by June 30, the Dunham Fund will match the amount, Weisner said.
