During the meeting held on August 20, 2019, Mark Auble introduced John Moritz and Cheryl Steiner to the club.  They presented a program about the Wayne County Committee for Crippled Children and Adults.  John is the president and Cheryl is the treasurer of the board which has approximately thirty members.  The board makes decisions to offer grants that help individuals with health problems that include medical equipment, mobility concerns, prescriptions, alert systems, language assistance technology and playground equipment.
The committee was established 100 years ago with the assistance of the Rotary club of Elyria.  Locally, the chapter was started in 1949 when the polio epidemic was underway.  The committee was started to address orthopedic concerns and mobility assistance but has developed over the years to include other health concerns.  
The committee is able to grant financial assistance that totals $50,000 - $75,000 annually.  They are proud that the administrative costs are low and of every $1 donated, $0.89 is able to go to individuals that need assistance.  There is an annual letter campaign that is the fundraiser for the year.  The committee also receives financial donations from Orrville Rotary and Wayne and Holmes County United Way.  You can learn more about this organization by visiting their website at www.wcccca.org.
