This past week the Rotary Club of North Bay distributed a total of $27,500 to 7 organizations involved with providing food programs in North Bay and surrounding municipalities. 

The North Bay, Mattawa, West Nipissing, and North Bay Salvation Army food banks each received $5,000, with $2,500 going to the Callander and Powassan and District food banks and St. John’s Anglican Church Open Arms Café.

“The club recognizes just how important each of these organizations are to the communities and families they serve throughout the year, and particularly at this time of the year”, state club president Grace Doiron. Doiron added “Rotary is all about Service above self”.

The funding was made possible thanks to the many individuals who play Rotary-At-Home TV Bingo each Wednesday evening on YourTV (Cogeco Channels 12 and HD 700).
