Sunrise Rotary Vero Beach Foundation Donates to Rotary Bahamas Relief

Days after Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas, Rotary Vero Beach Sunrise Foundation, the club's own 501c3 foundation, offered to match dollar for dollar up to $10,000 all donations made by Sunrise members for the Bahamas Relief. 

By the end of September, club members more than matched that amount and will be sending $22,863 to Rotary Bahamas Relief through Districts 6990 and 7020. Past President Kevin Anderson's son Oliver and his friends created their own lemonade stand to raise money and donated it towards the effort.  Former Sunrise member and US National Jiu Jitsu Champion, also contributed $3,500 from funds raised at one of his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu locations.  Sunrise Rotary Vero Beach practicing Service Above Self !

This project began as most Rotary projects do. I was invited to participate in a new effort by the Rotary Club of Vero Beach Sunrise to visit the Dominican Republic and learn about local efforts to improve drinking water. Three past presidents were leading the project by building on work Rotary clubs in Michigan had done. As president-elect, I wanted to know more.

The basis of the project was to assess the needs of the local community, and if possible to implement and sustain, we would fund as much of the project as we were able.   Read more ...

Musa Muhammed Ali, a farmer in Borno state, Nigeria, has had to deal with the many ways polio has affected his life. For instance, he used to have to pay for transportation when he needed to buy feed for his animals. But after receiving a hand-operated tricycle funded through Rotary’s PolioPlus grants, Ali can now spend that money on other necessities. His life was changed by the “plus” in PolioPlus.
