South-end Rotary hands out almost $12,000

South Cowichan Rotary Club president Glenn Terrell dished out early Christmas gifts last week to three local volunteer organizations and projects on behalf of the organization.

Terrell, at the south-end Rotary Club’s meeting Dec. 21, presented cheques totaling $11,500 to the CMS Food Bank Society, Cowichan Valley Hospice Society, and Cowichan Community Kitchens.

Organization representatives Lou Thornton (CMS Food Bank), Gretchen Hartley (Hospice) and Lori Iannidinardo (Community Kitchens) were on hand to accept the dough.

“You make a concrete difference to many lives in crisis and need,” Hospice’s Hartley said. “Your leadership allows us to leverage these funds as we seek help from the rest of the community.”

During the past 20 years, the South-Cowichan (Mill Bay) club has supported local organizations with more than $250,000 of donations.
