Rotary Club of Kemptville would like to thank everyone who donated to our Ukraine Blanket Fundraiser project, “We will warm up Ukraine in a difficult hour”, a project of the Rotary Club of Kharkiv, Ukraine.
We as a community raised $3000, which was matched by Rotary District 7040 for a total of $6000. But it went beyond North Grenville. Rotary Clubs from Eastern Ontario, Northern New York and Montreal raised approximately $55,000. All monies raised have been sent directly to the Club project in Ukraine.
Together we have provided monies for 1,375 blankets, which will be life saving for many who continue to struggle to stay warm amidst the war.
