FEATURED PROJECTS & INITIATIVES
Sweat Equity Weekend
 
What exactly is Camp Scugog? In simple terms, we head up for a weekend of hard work fixing up a camp (located near Port Perry) for disadvantaged families. What does this entail? Generally we’re painting cabins, fixing fences and other assorted projects. No special skills are required – though there are specific projects for those who have a skilled trade background.
Sherbourne Health Bus
 
For the past 23 years, The Rotary Club of Toronto Health Bus, a program of Sherbourne Health Centre, has served homeless people in Toronto. With up to 10,000 client visits annually, the Health Bus reduces barriers by bringing health care directly to people in our city who need it most.

Community Impact

 

“We are so grateful for the legacy of support from The Rotary Club of Toronto. The third generation Rotary Club of Toronto Health Bus allows us to expand our services and provides accessible and equitable health care directly to some of the most marginalized people in our city. This has a profound impact on the health and lives of many Torontonians.”

“The Rotary Club of Toronto Charitable Foundation has committed to donating $351,000 to the Toronto Ride Program (led by SPRINT Senior Care) over five years to replace the aging vehicles in our fleet. This generous donation will allow Toronto Ride to maintain its commitment to providing 189,000 safe, reliable rides to over 4,000 clients per year throughout Toronto, reducing isolation amongst seniors and adults with disabilities, enabling them to live independently.”

Stacy Landau
CEO, SPRINT Senior Care
“The Rotary Club of Toronto Charitable Foundation has donated $50,000 to the IWIP program to help us achieve the expansion we have envisioned so that we can reach even more women and improve their cultural, social and professional lives. Rotary’s funding will allow us to invest in virtual and distance learning technologies, bringing the program to any Toronto immigrant woman through virtual computer access. The expansion of IWIP will mean that we can reach more newcomer women who may be living in isolation than we have before. On average, 10 IWIP trainees connect with more than 2,500 residents in their respective neighbourhoods, through their community engagement practicums. We anticipate a 300% increase in trainees, which also translates to over 6,000 newcomer women participating in workshops and other activities led or organized by trainees.”
