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.

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.

A big thank you to all who supported our 2021 Food Drive! We have been doing this food drive annually in partnership with the Salvation Army Food Bank and PWC High School for 38 years. We had to change some things this year due to Covid restrictions the last few years but the new model has been a big success. On Saturday, Oct 23rd we collected over 20,000 lbs of food as well as cash and gift cards! Thank you to Sobeys stores and Coleman’s on NL Drive for allowing us to set up collections sites outside their stores. A big thank you to the general public for your generous donations! The impact of the very successful day will go on as vulnerable individuals & families receive help from the Food Bank in the weeks ahead.
 
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.
