Richmond Rotary donates $3,000 to the Richmond Christmas Fund.
The Christmas Season is one of the busiest times of the year for Richmond Rotary. Every year, Richmond Rotary raises money, volunteers its time, and donates to causes and groups that are less fortunate. While the Christmas and Holiday season is a festive time, and a time to celebrate, it's also a challenging period for many people in our communities, including many Richmondites. 
That is why on December 16th, 2021, Richmond Rotary raised $3000 from it's members to donate to the Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives, Richmond Christmas Fund. Richmond Rotarians, donating approximately $100 each (some more), were able to mobilize quickly to raise the money and issue a cheque days later.  
Every year, the Christmas Fund distributes food vouchers, toys, books, sports equipment, and gift cards to people in-need in Richmond. The program is supported by nearly 150 volunteers.  Richmond residents, businesses, and community groups, such as the Richmond Rotary, donate cash and toys to support the annual fund. 
We were honored to present the cheque to President and CEO of Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives, Ed Gavsie (far right). Richmond Rotary is proud that it's contribution helped improve someone's Christmas and Holiday season in our community of Richmond.
