The Rotary Club of Scarborough has been very, very, busy during this Covid-19 Pandemic.  Over the next few days we will be posting many of our projects.  This is Part Two.
Vulnerable Families Project – TDSB and TCDSB:
Through local Rotarian members and their local school board connections, it was brought to our attention that many families (known by principals in their respective schools) have no money for food and are struggling to pay rent.  With the support of Superintendents within the TCDSB and the TDSB, our Club purchased $4000 worth of $50 Food / Gift Cards which were delivered to Principals for distribution.   
This project was a special request from the TDSB.  Here is one letter we recently received.
“I am writing to you to thank you for your most generous donation of food gift cards to ten families from our school. As I am sure you are aware, our school services students and families from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and economic realities. We are situated in a designated area of economic need and we also welcome families who have made the journey to Canada to escape war and persecution in other countries.
Your donation will ensure ten of our families will enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having a solid base of food items they can draw from when things get challenging. It will also ensure that in the midst of this global crisis, they understand their needs are important and that there are individuals and larger organizations who are actively trying to help them. I therefore thank you on behalf of myself, the families who have been touched by your generosity, our School Board and the wider community which they serve.”
