STARFISH PROGRAM
 
COVID-19.  Rotary Club Langley Sunrise is proud to be involved and support the Starfish Program in North Langley.  Its a program that sends food home on weekends to elementary students for those are in need during the course of the school year, so kids come to school well fed and ready to learn. In response to the current pandemic our partner, the Langley School District Foundation, is purchasing gift cards from participating grocery stores: Save-on-Foods, Super Store & affiliates and Otter Co-op to distribute to the families who need this at this crucial time. We are currently looking to the community for your support to continue this program.  If you would like to donate you can by clicking this link.

We are so appreciative and thankful of community supporters like the Thank you for Caring Society.  They have chosen the North Langley Starfish Program as their beneficiary this year, this is a program that sends backpacks full of food staples home with elementary school kids on the weekend who lack food security.  Thank you for Caring Society has donated $6500.00 to the program.  This will help a lot of kinds in North Langley. We were happy to meet with the Society to receive the cheque. In the photo below are members from the Thank you for Caring Society and RCLS members Dan Bennett and May Bernard.
 

Debbie Froese, the wife of Langley Township mayor, was the founder of the Mayors Wives' Tea, which over time became the Thank You For Caring  - A Christmas Tea. In 2019 the Tea evolved into the formation of a not-for-profit society.  This allowed them to expand their reach to help more Langley families in need.  The first tea started with 200 woman and now sells out annually with 500.  Since 2013 they have raised over $178,000.00 for the local Christmas Bureau, and other local Charities.  This has helped over 700 families yearly in the Langleys. For more information on the Society check out this link.

On December 3, 2020 we were happy to announce a winner to the Langley Rotary 50/50 Mega Draw.  It was a successful fundraiser for the four Rotary Clubs in Langley. The jackpot grew to over $147,000.
 
Katy Mayrs, the winner of the Langley Rotary Clubs Mega 50/50 Draw was more than surprised at the news. She owns a local printing business in Langley and has always supported Rotary.   Congratulations to Katy on her big win.  
 
We also have to thank our sponsors and partners for their contribution to this important fundraising event that will help Rotary continue the work they do in the community.  
 
 
 
 
 
Members of the four Rotary Clubs of Langley are dedicated to offering their time and talents to help improve the quality of life for people within this community and around the world. Many local organizations have benefited from the enthusiastic support of the four Rotary Clubs in Langley. Our efforts to support these and other community needs depend on our ability to raise funds and this year our major fundraisers have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. By purchasing tickets to the Langley Rotary Mega 50/50 Draw, you will be contributing greatly to the positive future of people in need. AND you will have the chance to win up to $100,000! Thank you for helping us help others.
 
 
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise is a proud supporter of the Starfish Program.  This program provides much needed food on the weekends. Each Friday at school these kids are given a backpack full of staples to ensure they are ready and nourished to learn on Monday. It is providing food security to the most vulnerable in our community.  Our Club has been integral in fundraising and coordinating donations for this program in North Langley. It is facilitated and supported by the Langley School District Foundation. One of our Club’s signature events - Taste of Fort Langley -  dedicates all the proceeds to this program. 
 
We are pleased to continue supporting the North Langley Starfish program during the COVID-19 pandemic with a matching grant from the Rotary District 5050 of $1700.00.  We have sent a cheque for a total of  $3,400.00 to the  Langley School District Foundation who, in turn will use these funds to provide weekly grocery credit to these same families until the schools have returned to being fully operational. To encourage contactless interactions these families are asked to provide identification and a letter from the School District at participating grocers. This will ensure that there is no interruption in support for nourishing food during this time of isolation while at the same time reducing the chance of further spread of this virus.

There has been an increase in the demand for services like Meals on Wheels in our local community during the pandemic. As part of our Club's response to COVID-19 we have been working with Meals on Wheels, and our Club members and their friends & family have been lending a helping hand,  delivering meals to those who cannot get out to get groceries.  It has been a great way for our members to connect with those in the community.
 
If you are interested in volunteering please email us at rotarylangleysunrise@gmail.com, and we will assist in connecting you.  Our Club members have enjoyed the experience thus far, and those who receive the service are super grateful.
