On May 22nd we will be joining 24 other nonprofits and charities in the Evansville chapter of Walking for Dreams 2022. A link to donate is at the end of this message. Our club goal is to raise $15,000. This will be through donations, people walking with us and sponsorships. What will we do with the money? Rotary International is the oldest of the service organizations. Service is our business. Rotary International funds polio eradication efforts in Southwest Asia and West Africa. Ridding the world of polio has been a 30 campaign by Rotary and thankfully we are almost there, only TWO cases reported this year. RI also funds education, clean water, equal opportunities for girls and women, peace initiatives and scholarships for international students, just to name a few. Our club contributes RI every year to support these efforts.
Locally our club supports Habitat for Humanity, Honor Flight, American Red Cross, J D Sheth Foundation, and Feed Evansville and other well deserving local organizations. Last spring we gave out three $1,000 scholarships to seniors graduating from Bosse and North. We would like to expand that program to all Evansville high schools. So you can see need some funds to continue to serve our community. Please consider joining us on the walk and donating to our cause.
