Greetings Port Orchard Rotarians,
 
It is often difficult to leave an  imprint or legacy as individuals-----but together, as Rotarians, our dollars help to support the eradication of Polio and the work of our global grants in one of the six focus areas.   April is Maternal and Child Health Month.   Last year of the 1,306 global grants at work…..102 were in this focus area.   When we consider our collective efforts to eradicate polio we know that child health has been dramatically improved as we come ‘this close’ to eradicating polio from our world.   In 2019 there have been 6 reported wild polio cases.
 
Port Orchard Rotary’s contributions to both the Annual Fund and Polio Plus are noteworthy.  Port Orchard Rotary is hoping to qualify as EREY (Every Rotarians Every year) this year.   If you haven’t had an opportunity to donate a minimum of $25.00, please do so. 
 
Our contributions as a District ….to date….are less than they were at this point last year.   For Zone 25 (which includes 10 clubs) the average per capita contribution is $124.41.   District 5020’s per capita contribution is $105.37.   This places District 5020 9th of the 10 Districts in our Zone.   The highest per capita is D5150 at $222.24 per member.  
 
We encourage members to:
  • (EREY)  contribute at least $25.00 U.S./year. 
  • sign up for Rotary Direct on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual basis.  
  • become a Paul Harris Society member (this is a pledge of $1000 / year)
Together, we can make a difference.

About Camp to Belong Washington
 
Brothers and sisters typically experience the longest life relationships. That is why
Camp To Belong Washington believes it is so important to keep siblings
connected when they are separated due to foster care, adoption or relative care. 
Since 2009, Camp To Belong Washington has been creating opportunities
for these brothers and sisters to laugh, cry, experience hope, begin healing
and to create important memories that will last a lifetime.
