THERE IS STILL TIME TO DONATE AND RECEIVE PHF POINTS

So far in the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke's efforts in "The Ride to End Polio", we have raised $ 9,477.00.   These funds will be eligible for the 2:1 match by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,  resulting in a total contribution of $ 28,431.00 towards the eradication of polio.  We will be keeping this direct link to donate to this cause open until November 30, 2022.

EL TOUR DE TUCSON FINISHER:  PRESIDENT ELECT JOHN OSZUST

Along with his closest 7000 new friends, John completed the 102 mile El Tour de Tucson on November 19, 2022.  John is passionate about Rotary's focus to eradicate polio, and chaired the clubs fund raising campaign this year.  

Rotary riders braved the wind and cold to support our efforts to eradicate polio.  President Gordon pledged a dollar for every mile for Saturday mornings ride.  These funds will also benefit from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation 2:1 match.  John Oszust did an excellent job promoting this fundraiser.  We can't wait to see what our grand total will be, but first we must collect from President Gordon:

President Gordon presented Wendy Guyton with the "Above and Beyond Award".  Wendy has been instrumental in coordinating the volunteer efforts for the Fore For Kids Golf Tournament.
 
Once again our club will be honoring area veterans by placing wreaths on graves with Wreaths Across America.  This year we will be joined by other Rotarians in the area and will join them for fellowship after the event at the Dove Mountain Brewery.
We will be carpooling from SaddleBrooke and SaddleBrooke Ranch to the Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Marina.

Fueling the Future – Food Drive

Our club will again support this food drive that benefits the children that depend on the schools throughout the school year for their breakfast and lunches in the Oracle Schools.  Donated food will be distributed to families in need to get them through winter break when food is not provided by the school system.
 
Monica Oszust is coordinating the collection of food and volunteers that will be needed to distribute it to the families.  Monica will be collecting non-perishable food items at her home, and will have sign up sheets at the coming meeting for the following volunteer times:

December 8th 9am-10:30am to sort the donated food,

December 12th 9am to help pack the bags,

December 15th 10:30am to help handout bags at the school

Although the school is prohibited from accepting cash checks or gift cards directly, checks can be made out to the Oracle Community Center. Your check can be then used as a donation for tax purposes. Checks will be cashed and used to shop for perishable Items. Last year, we ordered perishables from Costco of milk, eggs, butter, potatoes, apples and oranges. These items will be picked up by volunteers and distributed with a non-perishables on December 15. Your GENEROSITY Enabled 55 families to have food for the winter break.

 

 

 

The need for personal hygiene items continues in our area.  When doing your weekly shopping please grab an extra bar of soap, toothpaste or any hygiene item to bring to our weekly meetings.  A collection basket will be at the greeter table and members John and Linda Howard will transport them to Impact for distribution.
