Congratulations to Courtney and Ashley!  

As part of our Adopt-A-Village project the seventh shipping container recently arrived at Tshelanyemba Hospital in Zimbabwe. Personal protective equipment, computers, medical, school and community supplies are now being distributed in this remote area of the country assisting so many people.

Many thanks to everyone involved. You've made a huge impact on the lives of our friends in Tshelanyemba.

A note of gratitude from the hospital administrator on the arrival of the container: “We are so very grateful for the wonderful work you continue to do for the hospital and community. The medical equipment and supplies that recently arrived on your container continue to change and save lives in our community especially during this Covid-19 period. “

Rotarians of the Rotary Club of St. John’s Northwest are proud to be people of action. A part of that action was our multi-year commitment in 2012 to help provide six figure seed funding to the Salvation Army Ches Penney Centre of Hope. This funding commitment was a catalyst for getting the project off the ground and it is wonderful to see the project now a reality. The Salvation Army Ches Penney Centre of Hope will provide housing for the homeless, food bank and feeding programs, health services, employment training  and other supports to those in need . Rotarians are people of action, helping others.
 

A big thank you to all who supported our 2020 Food Drive! We have been doing this food drive annually in partnership with the Salvation Army Food Bank and PWC High School for over 35 years. We had to change some things this year due to Covid restrictions but as we learned, change can be positive. On Saturday, Oct 10th we collected over 20,000 lbs of food and over $7000 in cash and gift cards! Thank you to Sobeys stores and Coleman’s on NL Drive for allowing us to set up collections sites outside their stores. A big thank you to the general public for your generous donations! The impact of the very successful day will go on as vulnerable individuals & families receive help from the Food Bank in the weeks ahead.
