On Saturday, March 21 the Rotary Club of Ajax and teams of community volunteers will package 50,000 meals during the Club's 7th Kids Against Hunger food packing event. For more information about Kids Against Hunger and its programs please see visit the Kids Against Hunger website - http://kahcanada.org/
 
By the end of the day, the Club will have packaged and donated 400,000 meals since 2014.  This work could not have been completed without our sponsors - Forest Brook Community Church and McEachnie Funeral Home and our community volunteers.
 
We cannot do this work without your help.  Please consider joining us for a two hour shift on October 5.
 
These hours are eligible for OSSD reporting.
 
To volunteer please contact Donna Bright at dbright56@hotmail.com.
 
Thank you.
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Ajax held its third hockey equipment drive and it was a great success.  Many, many thanks to community donors such as the women players of the Ontario Tech University's Ridgebacks, the Oshawa Girls' Hockey Association, Crow's Sports of Oshawa, Indigenous Education and Cultural Services of Ontario Tech University, Boyer GMC, Rob Pearson and Pickering Panthers, and many other individual donors.  Thanks to Salvation Army, Ajax and McEachnie Funeral Home for providing transport to move the equipment to a staging ground for transport.
 
Approximately 100 boxes and bags of winter clothing and equipment will add value to children and adults in many northern communities.
On January 4, 2020 the Rotary Club of Ajax will hold its third drive for gently used hockey equipment and winter clothing. 
 
The equipment and clothing is donated free of charge to families in remote Northern communities and will allow children and adults to enjoy a healthy winter activity.
 
Equipment for all ages and genders will be gratefully accepted. 
 
We thank the community for your incredible support in 2018 and 2017 and hope to see you again in the new year.

Just1Item

 

If EVERY shopper, EACH and EVERY WEEK bought JUST 1 item for the Food Bank and dropped it off at a local Food Bank Donation Bin located at the front of the supermarket they shop at, we would put an end to hunger in this country.
