RCGI donates ham­pers to the el­derly

The Star (St. Lucia) - - TRAVEL -

The Ro­tary Club of Gros Islet has once again reached out to the less for­tu­nate and un­der priv­i­leged by do­nat­ing ham­pers to some of the nurs­ing homes through­out the is­land. Ro­tar­ian Maria Thom led a team of four mem­bers to visit and spread good cheer over the hol­i­day sea­son. The Ro­tary Club of Gros Islet is part of Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional, a char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tion which boosts over 1 mil­lion mem­bers world­wide. It was formed by an at­tor­ney, Paul Har­ris on the 23rd Fe­bru­ary 1923 in Chicago, Illi­nois, USA. There are three clubs in Saint Lu­cia: Ro­tary Club of Saint Lu­cia, Ro­tary Club of Saint Lu­cia South and the Ro­tary Club of Gros Islet.

The club raises funds through­out the year, and had its main fundraiser event, the an­nual golf tour­na­ment in Novem­ber last year. The club is plan­ning other fundrais­ers in­clud­ing its an­nual Char­ter Night which will be later this month.
