With still a third of the year to go, the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill has already donated more than $2,000 to help local charities.
“While it is important to support international Rotary initiatives such as Alzheimer’s research and the eradication of polio, and our club continues to do so, we feel very strongly that in these challenging economic times we need to help our local community more so now than ever,” said Aimee Harris, president of the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill and attorney at Harvey & Hendrix.
The charities to which the local Rotary has donated includes:
• The Matthew Freeman Foundation: a donation of $1,000 has been made to support a local hero’s project, Pens and Paper for Peace.
• Helen’s Haven: a donation of $500 to help this Hinesville-based Children’s Advocacy Center, which helps children who are victims of abuse in Liberty, Bryan, Evans, Long, McIntosh and Tattnall counties.
• United Way of the Coastal Empire: a donation of $500 to support this organization that provides health and human services information in Bryan, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty and McIntosh counties.
• Take a Soldier Fishing: a donation of $150 to help this charity shows support and appreciation to our troops by providing a safe and positive outdoor experience.
“Our Rotary Club will continue to make regular donations to good causes in our region, especially as the holiday season approaches,” Harris said. “We remain acutely aware of the needs of senior citizens and young people in particular.”
