Thanks to the Rotary Club of Sarnia, more children in Sarnia will know how to swim!
We are pleased to announce that a $5000 Action Grant was presented this month for the Children’s Learn to Swim Program at the YMCA Rotary Club of Sarnia Aquatic Centre.
St. Joseph’s Hospice has benefitted from a new Rotary Club of Sarnia $10,500.00 “Action Grant”. The Action Grant was made in honour of the Shetty Family, who have consistently worked to benefit Rotary Charitable Projects. The funds have been used for a new chair lift for the hospice therapeutic tub.

 The Petrolia Community Refrigerator (PCR) has received a Sarnia Rotary Grant with the theme "Service Above Self". PCR volunteers are thrilled and honored to be the recipient of this grant, especially from a service club with a solid community commitment for many years. Proceeds will go to ongoing PCR operations, providing free food to anyone in the community facing food insecurity. 
         The theme "Service Above Self" is especially relevant to the 33+ volunteers at the PCR that stock the facility, inspect and clean once a week, perform "food rescue" operations, or shop for food items every week. Our volunteers are committed to ensuring the community of Petrolia has a facility readily available to anyone that needs access to free food.
      Petrolia Community Refrigerator is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to allow people in need to access the facility with dignity and respect. The PCR motto is "Take What You Need" and "Leave What You Can". People can take items that are available, and at the same time, people in the community are encouraged to drop off food items in our hamper.
      Thank you Sarnia Rotary for supporting the Petrolia Community Refrigerator

Rotary Club of Sarnia “Little Free Libraries” have popped-up all around Sarnia! In collaboration with Literacy Lambton, the Rotary Club suggests you ”leave a book, when you take a book”.
You can find one of our Rotary Little Free Libraries at Centennial, Marcin, Twin Lakes and Germain Parks.
Funds earned by our Rotary Club through Bingos at Jackpot City, have been used to sponsor a secondary school student to attend the Adventures in Citizenship Conference virtually this year. Also we made a $500.00 donation to The Friends of Pinery Park for their educational and research programs. We are fortunate to have this wonderful park so close to home here in Lambton County.
Thanks to the financial support of The Rotary Club of Sarnia, (and 9 other partner agencies), Victim Services Sarnia Lambton and Sarnia Lambton Suicide Prevention Committee are launching a new program to support the loved ones of those who died by suicide. The “Community Navigator” will follow-up with loved ones on a longer term basis and check with them on critical dates, such as suicide victim’s birthdays, special holidays, etc., and ensure those loved ones receive needed enhanced emotional support.
