The Rotary GREAT LAKES WATERSHED CLEANUP’ is underway until June 30.  Over 20,000 Rotarians on both sides of the Canadian and U.S. border have rolled up their sleeves to collect refuse along the shoreline, and innumerable waterway tributaries to the Great Lakes basin.  This is great example of ‘ROTARY IN ACTION’ and brings considerable community attention to the importance of ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY’.

Individuals and clubs can register and organize their cleanup at  

https://shorelinecleanup.ca/ 

and inform James Weber (DEC co-chair)  weberjames13@gmail.com of their participation and any data they may have (number of people who did the cleanup and garbage bags or weight collected).

Help India Breathe

The Rotary Clubs of Oakville, Oakville West, Passport South and Halton Rotaract along with many other clubs and Rotarians in southwest Ontario have joined the campaign to “Help India Breathe” with an initiative to establish Rotary Oxygen Banks in India.  This is a global Rotary initiative with clubs around the world helping.

The Bank would loan an oxygen concentrator to a patient in need with the provision that after the immediate crisis is over, the concentrator would be returned to the Oxygen Bank and available to others.  The price of each concentrator is approximately US$1,000. Local Oakville Rotarians have sent over $5,250 to support this international relief project. Cheques received and pledges so far from southwest Ontario total $109,155.00.

Rotary Helping Oakville

To help respond to the global COVID-19 crisis the four local Rotary clubs have joined forces to create the Oakville Rotary Relief Fund. This fund will address pressing needs within our community during this time of great challenge and turmoil – during the Covid19 crisis.

All donations to the Fund are tax deductible, and a tax receipt will be issued to you by CanadaHelps.
