Kawartha Rotary Donates to Community Care Meals On Wheels and Grocery Delivery Porgrams
December 16th, 2020

The Rotary Club of Peterborough Kawartha is pleased to announce that they have made a contribution of $1600.00 to Community Care Peterborough to assist with the Meals on Wheels and Grocery Delivery programs. 

 

Alicia Vandine, Donor Relations and Communications Lead for Community Care expressed her delight with the contribution.  “Thank you to the Kawartha Rotary Club for this generous contribution. The presence of COVID -19 in the community has had an effect on Community Care’s food programs.  The demand for Meals on Wheels exponentially increased as seniors and members of our area with physical challenges needed alternatives so they did not need to venture into area grocery stores.  During the pandemic, we also implemented a Grocery Delivery program which has seen a drastic increase with Community Care now serving 191 clients with 3500 orders of groceries delivered since April 2020”

Dan Grady, President, Kawartha Rotary Club stated “We are proud of our community involvement and these funds will directly assist some of our cities most vulnerable at a very difficult time”
