You may have seen the attached article on the Food Rescue Project by Victoria Foundation CEO Sandra Richardson in Sunday’s Times-Colonist.  If not, I attach it for your information (link below).


Everyone in our Club should be extremely proud of the efforts put forward in our 2015 car raffle fundraiser to enable us to contribute over $100,000 to the Program – which the Victoria Foundation matched.  And in that regard, special thanks are extended to Gordon Greeniaus for his hard work and dedication in making the car raffle such a success over the years, in particular in 2015.

 

As Ms. Richardson concludes “The Food Rescue Program is up and running now, and you’ll hear more about it in the near future. Stay tuned.”!

 

Well Done Rotary Club of Victoria! :)


Sincerely,
Janet - your President

As you may know, our Club played a key role in the formation of the Food Rescue Program that launched this past Thursday in Esquimalt. It was a very special day for Rotary, The Mustard Seed Street Church, The Victoria Foundation and Thrifty Food’s with the official opening of the Food Distribution Centre. Our hard work in fund-raising has manifested itself in this wonderful program from which thousands of needy Victorians will benefit.

The car raffle that has been a part of our Club for many years concluded its legacy of hard work and dedication by many Rotarians and friends of Rotary in 2015. That year, our Club teamed up with other Rotary Clubs to raise 100,000 which was matched Victoria Foundation. The total of $200,000 was donated to the startup of the Food Rescue Program. We should all be proud to be part of such an amazing community venture. One that we hope will be around for many years to come.

Thank you for your time and efforts. You do make a difference! :)

Sincerely, Janet Power

After more than two years without any new polio outbreaks, the Government of Nigeria reported on 11 August 2016 that two children have been paralyzed by the disease.

Rotary International has immediately responded by recommitting "its efforts to ensure that every child is born into a polio-free world where they are safe from this paralyzing disease."
