Kenmore Rotary is helping to support E-Waste Connection, which is a "a community resource, offering valuable work experience for individuals with disability or disadvantaged background". Kenmore Rotary contributed financially to help fund the shade sails etc.
The Feros Grant has been running for a number of years. In 2015 the total program cost was $17,200 so Kenmore Rotary's $2000 is a minor contribution but highly valued. Our Club started with a $1000 contribution but the following year the Board agreed to increase that to $2000. What our $2000 did was to allow small extension of this program to be able to provide grants for 2x Nursing student. Toowong Rotary apply for a District Grant to help subsidise the program costs – usually get approx. $7500 from District grant. Students have to formally apply and applicants are short listed by the UQ Medical School and the QUT Nursing School. The shortlisted applicants are then interviewed by a panel
Donations to Longreach Rotary to support the Western Queensland Drought Appeal
July 15, 2017
This has been a cash donation – I think this has been two lots of $1000 donations to date. Both Jim Dalton & Patrick Cook on separate occasions personally visited Longreach and made the donation to the Longreach club on behalf of Kenmore Rotary. Longreach Rotary use the cash donations to load debit cards which are anonymously donated to local families is dire need of assistance. These families then spend this money in the local shops in town and the dollars are cycled through the local community.
