What's new
Saturday was an important day for our club. We had our first meal packaging event in three years. Close to 50 volunteers and 16 Rotarians from out club were on hand for the 10: 00 AM starting time and by 11:45 AM better than 10,000 meals were packaged and boxed for a as yet unknown destination. They will be held in a local warehouse until we have enough meals to fill a cargo container at which time they will be shipped off to an orphanage somewhere in the world where it is needed.
 
Last Saturday, despite the crazy weather, the club held a collection to support both the Bedford Rotary Foundation and the Epilepsy Foundation of New England. It was wonderful to see so many people willing to contribute and help the causes! 
 
The more we think about it, the more we are amazed at the caring and generosity of some people in and organizations associated with our club.  We had that experience again last week.  We have been asking people to donate to The Rotary Foundation for credit to its Disaster Response Fund by the end of April, knowing that every such dollar will be spent in direct support of providing humanitarian relief for the people of Ukraine. 
Roy Balfour joined us from the Rotary Club of Shrewsbury to speak about the founding of the very first Rotary Club in Ukraine.  District 7910 supported the formation of this Club and 30 years later is working to respond to the current crisis. He urged us to donate to the Rotary International Disaster Relief fund before April 30. 
 
Donate for Ukraine with confidence as:
  • Rotary is not a religious nor political organization. Rather it is 1.2 million caring professionals in 35,000 Rotary clubs in more than 220 countries.
  • Rotary donations are not impacted by admin fees, every $ goes toward the effort.
  • Rotary has a global reputation for good stewardship of donations and prioritizing emergency needs.
  • Rotary donations are USA tax deductible.
  • Rotary is the only NGO with a seat at the UN.
