On Saturday, September 26, the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill will be holding their first “Bottle and Food Drive” to collect alcoholic bottles/cans for deposit refund, and packaged food.
 
The money collected will be used to the benefit our local community programs in desperate need during the Covid-19 pandemic.  The packaged food will go to the Richmond Hill Food Bank.  So this Bottle and Food Drive is really crucial.
 
Please help by dropping off your beer cans and liquor bottles, or making a packaged food donation, on Saturday, September 26, 11am-4pm at one of four drop off locations:
  1. Dr. C.P. Giri - 9791 Bayview Ave Richmond Hill
  2. 10909 Yonge St, Richmond Hill (Loblaws Plaza)
  3. 29 Bedford Park Ave, Richmond Hill
  4. 376 Church St South, Richmond Hill (Board of Trade Office)

On Monday, we were honoured to have Luke Vorstermans speak at our meetingLuke, from the Rotary Club of Gibsons, BC, is the Founder Roll a Hippo Foundation, and Chair of the Hippo Roller Project.
 
Many girls and women around the world, particularly in poor countries, focus much of their lives on carrying water for their families, from rivers and wells to their family homes.  It is physically demanding, thankless work.  The hippo water roller addresses this problem.  It moves 90 liters of water by rolling it on the ground.  The hippo water roller can transport more water, more easily and in less time than carrying 20-liter buckets on the head.
 
The hippo water roller is empowering girls and women around the world.  Thank you Luke for sharing your vision.

Laura Parsons from DeafBlind Ontario Foundation, https://deafblindontario.com/, was our guest speaker at our last Zoom club meeting.  It is really staggering that 1% of the Canadian population qualifies as deafblind.  The DeafBlind Ontario Foundation is involved with supporting the the deafblind with valuable "intervenor" support staff.  Laura, a long time professional fundraiser also provided some pointers on how to be effective at fundraising during these times of Covid.  Thank you Laura!  Below is a photo Laura presenting one of her slides.
