Press Release June 3, 2015
The Rotary Club of Scarborough is pleased to announce that it has provided funding of $100,000 for equipment and fixtures to The Canadian Centre for Refugee and Immigrant Health Care (The Centre) to establish its new home at 4158 Sheppard Avenue East. The Centre provides health care to those new Canadians who are not yet covered by our medical care system, and those recently insured without a physician and dental care to Canada’s many who go without. In their 15 year history, the Centre has been in borrowed premises; it is a real improvement to be able to lease their own facilities.
 
 
The Rotary Club of Scarborough has raised money for the last 14 years by hosting the Scarborough Rotary Ribfest in Thomson Park, and this is one way we return the money earned to the local community.
