Thank you Rotarians

 Service Above Self in Action

Mitch’s report from Feed 6 Event:
With gratitude to our generous donors and inspired volunteers who joined hands on April 30th, 2022 to package 50,000 nutritious meals for Ukrainian refugees.
We wish to especially acknowledge the Rotary Club of Northbrook, the Barrington Breakfast Club Rotary, the Winnetka-Northfield Rotary, and NSBAR for sponsoring production lines and packaging teams.
Our gratitude to Aspire Chicago and Envision Unlimited for enthusiastically joining us with teams of their clients and coaches, and to the 150 volunteers who responded with open hearts to the plight of the refugees. 
And a huge thank-you to the owners and management of the Meridian Banquet & Conference Center which donated their lavish  facilities to the event.

Rotarians from several clubs participated.

John Hewko Speaks About Ukraine

Chamber & Club Event Registration is Open plus news from RI

Area Rotarians are invited to this special event to hear John Hewko. Q&A follows.
RSVP for May 25 Zoom Event
As the war in Ukraine continues to fuel a humanitarian crisis of staggering proportions, Americans are looking for effective ways to help. In a special Ask the Expert presentation, the Chamber welcomes Rotary International’s Secretary General for a first-hand look at how the global organization has mobilized to provide aid for refugees. 
The Chamber’s Ukraine lunchtime event will be held via zoom on Wednesday, May 25 at 11:45 a.m.  Admission is free for Chamber and Rotary members, guests. We encourage you to share and invite others to hear about this issue. 
NEWS UPDATE FROM Rotary International Board of Directors & Rotary Foundation Board of Trustees on  26 April 2022
Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation stand with the United Nations General Assembly in expressing grave concern at “the ongoing human rights and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, in particular at the reports of violations and abuses of human rights and violations of international humanitarian law by the Russian Federation.”
As a global humanitarian organization, Rotary takes a proactive stance toward peacemaking by addressing the underlying causes of conflict.
We support recent UN General Assembly resolutions calling for an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of Russian military forces from Ukraine. This aligns with Rotary’s deep commitment to promoting peace through dialogue and conflict resolution.
We are working beside our partners in the international relief community to help provide resources to the more than 10 million Ukrainian refugees forced to flee the field of battle.
Donations to the Rotary International Disaster Relief Fund are appreciated. Advance registration is required by May 23.
