The Letterkenny Rotary Club has been happily helping local community groups during Covid-19 thanks to a highly successful fundraising drive.
Rotarians have raised over €1,000 in recent weeks to purchase essential items for people in need during the crisis.
Funds raised so far have been used to purchase toiletries and essential adults’ and children’s clothing for the Donegal Domestic Violence Refuge Centre in Letterkenny as well as a consignment of much needed foodstuffs for the Letterkenny Food Bank.
Siobhan Mc Ker of the Domestic Violence Refuge Centre was thrilled with the delivery and said that their services were needed now more than ever before and thanked the Rotary Club for their generous contribution.
John Walsh of the Letterkenny Food Bank was also very grateful for the delivery and advised that they had a lot of satisfied families today, thanks to the Rotary Club.
President of the Letterkenny Rotary Club, Padraig McGinty has thanked all the Rotary members and contributors for their efforts. “It is great to be able to do something, however small, for certain groups in our society who are really challenged by this crisis!,” Mr McGinty said.
“The Rotary Club Go Fund Me Page (https://www.gofundme.com/f/fundraiser-for-Covid-19) is still open for contributions and we would appeal to the wider public to still contribute so that we can continue the good work in this way.”
