Community Covid Report/What Have We Accomplished With Your Support

When Covid-19 arrived, T-C Rotary was caught flat footed like everyone else. Face to face meetings and our typical fund raisers could not proceed. Yet it was also clear that Covid-19 would cause great distress for some in our community so, we knew we had to act.

Our first act was in response to Foodland’s request to help keep their essential service open and safe. Rotarians organized more than 150 community volunteers to sanitize shopping carts, manage the store entrance and make deliveries, frequently more than 100 a day. The story of that community volunteer effort reached the national television news.

Our second act was to figure out how to raise funds. Enter the Hope in the Valley Virtual Gala, an on-line celebration of everything local. No one knew what to expect. To our great relief, the Blue Mountains community responded to make the Gala the single most successful fund raiser in T-C Rotary’s history and enabled us to meet our $40,000 goal!
