Burlington North Fighting COVID-19 in Guatemala

Our club strives to help our local community and to make a difference around the world. Our members teamed up to make a donation in support of Mayan villagers near Chiquimula Guatemala who are suffering under the pandemic restrictions they have to live with. We collected $5,120 CDN generously donated from our club members. We have forwarded this money down to our Rotary partners in Chiquimula and they have started purchasing and distributing the food and other necessities to the villagers! Based on this donation, our Rotary club applied for a matching grant from our Rotary District. It has now been approved and we will soon be sending down an equal amount!! Our efforts, which began as hoping to get a few hundred dollars has, through your generosity, grown to over $10,000 CDN. This will make a huge difference in the lives of many of the villagers which is what makes giving so rewarding and important. (April, 2020)

Interact Club Supports Bethany Residence

The Interact Club at Nelson High School decided, once again, to support the 129 people living at Bethany Residence in Burlington by donating appropriate gifts in time for Christmas.  Earlier, students held a bake sale to raise money.  In addition, the co-chairs invited Rotarians and others to donate gifts.  A great number of items were contributed this way, especially by Fareen and her customers at Burlington Orthotics.  In addition, the students in the Interact Club baked goods, which were also taken to Bethany on Friday December 7th.   (December, 2018)
