On December 13th Rotarians and community leaders were locked up at Strickland’s on Oleander drive. The jailbirds had to raise money to get the keys to freedom. We raised enough money to give a 13 years old diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma a gaming laptop so she can play games with her family while she’s visiting her doctors out of town.
We gave a 4 year old with an Optic nerve glioma, which has caused him to be blind in one eye, a iPad computer.
We also were able to give a 2-year 3-month-old little boy, with a bilateral moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss, a personal FM system that will help give him more access to language in noisy environments.
We recently donated $24,600 to 15 local charities and organizations. Of this, $12,000 went toward the purchase of a 3 Stall Horse Trailer for the Wilmington Police Department. Club President Fred Kumpel presented the donations. Check out the pics and captions for more info on the various recipients and the ways they will put the money to use!
