Covid-19 hit the homeless particularly hard. That's why the Rotary clubs of metro Halifax and 96.5 The Breeze teamed up to launch our first online 50/50 draw in support of Shelter Nova Scotia.
 
Rotary is the oldest service organization in the world. Rotarians have been putting Service Above Self for 115 years by funding local, youth and international programs. In these trying times Rotarians are helping to support one particular organization that Covid-19 has stretched to the limit, and beyond. 
 
Shelter Nova Scotia believes that everyone deserves a safe and affordable home. They support people in times of crisis and transition through residential and outreach programs, and operate six facilities, providing a safe place for up to 134 people each night. Click here to learn more about Shelter Nova Scotia.
 
Tickets $10 each or groupings of 3, 8 or 20, and are available at http://rafflebox.ca/raffle/rchh/4
 
This link will ensure you select Rotary Club Sackville and Area so that our club receives the appropriate recognition.

The draw date is Friday July 31st.
 
Thank you for supporting Shelter Nova Scotia. And good luck!

In the month of July ONLY! We are selling Tulips for Polio, thanks to the tremendous support of Vesey seeds
 
For $25 (inc tax and shipping) you will get 25 Rotary Tulip bulbs to plant for a beautiful spring display in 2021 and beyond. Bulbs will be shipped to me, in September and I will distribute them to people who have ordered them. We are asking if at all possible that they are planted on World Polio Day on Oct 24th.
 
We anticipate that $14 from each box will go to End Polio Now – with matched funding by the Gates Foundation, each box of bulbs could fully vaccinate approx. 67 children. To learn more about End Polio now click HERE
 
Please encourage friends, neighbours, family etc to buy them too (but see the note about where I can deliver them !!). Poster and picture also attached.
 
Here’s how to place an order.
Email rotarysally@yahoo.com  and tell me how many boxes you would like, and the address you would like them delivered to (preferably within HRM, but certainly in Nova Scotia 😊)
Send an e-transfer of $25 per box  to rotarysackville38@gmail.com and use the password TULIPS
 
Please make sure that your order and payment comes in before July 31.
 
Thank you for supporting the push to end Polio for ever.
