What's Going On?
We are excited to announce that we collected over $20,000 in food, toiletries, gift cards and cash on Saturday during our annual Food Drive with Prince of Wales Collegiate High School in support of the Salvation Army Food Bank. THANK YOU to everyone who donated and thank you to Sobeys and Dominion stores for allowing us to collect at their locations. We have been doing this Food Drive for almost 40 years and the demand on the food banks has never been higher, we are happy to have played a small role in helping The Salvation Army service the over 800 families they are currently helping per month.

As part of our Adopt-A-Village project the eighth shipping container has recently left St. John’s on its way to Tshelanyemba Hospital in Zimbabwe due to arrive in late October.
 
We collected personal protective equipment, computers, medical, school and community supplies to be distributed in the community of Tshelanyemba. Many thanks to everyone who contributed by donating supplies or by giving financially. The supplies that are sent continue to save lives and makes a huge difference in the community.
 
We are excited to welcome our Youth Exchange Student, Luise to St. John's! Luise arrived this week from Zurich, Switzerland and will be staying with us for the school year in St. John's while she attends Grade 11 at a local High School. We are looking forward to getting to know Luise and helping her learn more about Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as Canada.
 
We are excited that after a break due to Covid our club is back participating in the Rotary International Youth Exchange program. Our outbound student, Essie, is off to Italy for a year of study in District 2101. Have a great experience Essie!

We were honoured to host our Rotary International President, Ms. Jennifer Jones, at one of our clubs biggest projects, Northwest Rotary Housing Inc. over the July 1st weekend. The visit to St. John’s marked the start of her Imagine Rotary Canadian Tour. Northwest Rotary Housing Inc. provides housing to low income seniors, single parents, and people with disabilities.
 
Members from our club welcomed other Rotarians and Rotaract members from across our beautiful district to Rotary Manor to plant a new flower bed in the back and do some weeding and clean up of the perennials in front of the building. The residents of Rotary Manor were delighted with the transformation.

Rotarians of the Rotary Club of St. John’s Northwest are proud to be people of action. A part of that action was our multi-year commitment in 2012 to help provide six figure seed funding to the Salvation Army Ches Penney Centre of Hope. This funding commitment was a catalyst for getting the project off the ground and it is wonderful to see the project now a reality. The Salvation Army Ches Penney Centre of Hope will provide housing for the homeless, food bank and feeding programs, health services, employment training  and other supports to those in need . Rotarians are people of action, helping others.
