100th Anniversary

Rotary Club of Owen Sound
100th Anniversary
Thanks to the generous support of our community we have now raised $7,000 which will be shared equally between OSHaRE and the Salvation Army Food Bank.  Thank you to all who have donated.  We continue to accept donations and hope to reach our goal of $10,000 in our 100th year of Rotary in Owen Sound. 
2020 has been a long difficult year for many people in our community.  This holiday season please help us help those in our community who need it.  We have raised $7,000.00 so far.  Due to the current high demand at OSHaRE and the Salvation Army Food Bank we have already started to disburse funds where it is needed.  Every donation makes a difference and every cent will go directly to OSHaRE and the food bank! Please give if you can.  
In recognition of the Rotary Club of Owen Sound’s 100 years of service we are asking that individuals and businesses join us in donating $100 to help support the good work of OSHaRE and the Salvation Army Food Bank.  100% of the proceeds will be split between the two charities.  That’s $1.00 per year of service.  Working together, we can all make a difference during this Covid-19 crisis. 
Donations can be accepted by email transfer to:  owensoundrotary@gmail.com or mailed to the Rotary Club of Owen Sound at PO Box 352 Owen Sound Ontario N4K 5P5.   Charitable receipts will be issued to all who donate. (Please include name and address) Please give what you can to support others.
