Hello Rotary Friends,

Trust you and your families are OK in these challenging times.

Please find below, a nice letter we received today from Ronald McDonald House recognizing their volunteers, including our Rotary Interact Clubs.

We have participated in the RMH Home For Dinner Program for over 10 years.

In addition our Rotary Club of Edmonton Strathcona recently donated money for groceries for the residents at RMH. These funds had been allocated to the future Home For Dinner events this year that were cancelled.

Thanks to everyone who helped and supported our Rotary Interact Clubs at J. Percy Page & Wagner Schools. We had a great Rotary Interact school year until we had to hit the pause button with the community and global health concern.

Nice to know we are still positively impacting people on a daily basis in the community at this time including RMH.

Until we meet again, either in person or virtual.

Healthy Best Rotary Regards,


On Volunteer Appreciation Week, we want to send a message of thanks to the 337 in-House volunteers and the over 8,500 event and Home for Dinner volunteers who contributed their time to RMHC Alberta last year.

It has been said that our volunteers are the heart of our Houses, and this simply can't be overstated. Our volunteers give so much more than just their time; each of our volunteers play an essential role in supporting our mission and caring for our families.

Whether it's a warm cookie, a greeting smile, a clean room, a hot meal, a fun craft, or selling raffle tickets at an event, our volunteers indirectly touch our families in all kinds of different ways.

Most recently, in light of COVID-19, many of our Home for Dinner volunteers stepped up as a part of our #HeroFromHome campaign and we are so grateful for your contributions to keep food on the table for our families.

We wish we could celebrate with you in person, and we miss your presence greatly. Like all of you, we are staying safe with our families, and looking forward to a time when the RMHC Alberta family can be together again.

Please know that we are thinking of you -- not just this week, but every week. RMHC Alberta simply couldn't do what it does without our volunteers.

All the best,
Jason Evanson
CEO, RMHC Alberta
