Helping local families one donation at a time

Giant Tiger Kemptville announced its commitment to fighting hunger with a $2,000 gift card donation to Salvation Army Kemptville Client Choice Food Pantry.

“The holiday season is a particularly busy time of year for the food bank. At Giant Tiger we are committed to making a difference in our communities ensuring that families in need get the support and necessities they require,” says store owner Rick Kingsley. “We are proud of the partnership we have with our local food bank.”

According to Food Banks Canada, 13 per cent of Canadians live in a state of food uncertainty, which means they do not have dependable access to adequate amounts of safe, nutritious food. Each month, over 850,000 people turn to food banks for help; more than one-third are children and youth.

This donation is part of a $35,000 commitment made by Giant Tiger Stores to food banks in various communities across Canada.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who donated items for our food drive to help make this a holiday season for all to enjoy. Our Charles Dickens-themed float in the Santa Claus Parade quickly filled up with donations from parade route spectators, as we passed out treats for the children. Despite the chilly weather, the parade was a success and, as an added bonus for our club, our float placed second!

Rotarians have been out in the community selling the popular 2018 Cash Calendar, which are available for $20 each. A portion of each sale goes towards Rotary support of, and participation in, local programs. Draws are held on every day of the year, with winning amounts ranging from $20 to $1,000. You, too, could be a lucky winner – multiple times! Recently, Marla and Stewart of Kemptville won $1,000 and were congratulated at a Rotary meeting.

Kemptville Rotary is on an all-out drive to strengthen the club and recruit new members. A new brochure inviting you to “Be a part of it!” has been printed and can be found on display stands at local venues, as well as from individual members. Rotary is open to men and women of all ages, and is a wonderful way to make new friends and to be positive force in your community.

August 31 was an exciting day at Winchester District Memorial Hospital, as a big truck rolled up to deliver ten new Automated Dispensing Cabinets – or ADCs.

“This delivery was a direct result of the generous spirit of our local communities,” noted Kristen Casselman, the Foundation’s Managing Director. “The Foundation originally set out to fundraise for five ADC units and a pill packager, but our donors stepped up once again. Because of that, we were able to fund the second phase of the project much sooner than anticipated, funding all 10 ADC units and the pill packager.”

The new ADCs, and accompanying pill packager, ensure the right drug or drugs are dispensed to the right patient at the right time. They are like a vending machine that dispenses pre-packaged medication. Only one medication drawer can be unlocked at a time – both when stocking the machine and when a nurse is getting a patient’s medication. This simplifies the process and increases patient safety.

WDMH staff are now working on a detailed implementation and training plan. The new machines are expected to be up and running by next spring. Thank you to everyone who gave to the Foundation’s General Equipment Fund in support of the ADC project.

Volunteers from the Rideau Grenville Chapter of Ducks Unlimited Canada were grateful to receive the generous donation of $2,000 from the South Mountain Branch of Scotiabank. As has happened for the past several years at the Annual RG DUCS dinner/auction fundraising event, Nancy Miller-McKenzie, manager of the South Mountain Scotiabank Branch, along with other Scotiabank volunteers, have assisted at the dinner. Without their help, the event would not be the yearly success it has become.

Scotiabank takes the opportunity to jump in and help out with both time and dollars to various recipients throughout the year. The program is called the Scotiabank Team Community Program. This program supports Scotiabank employees in our efforts to help causes and charities in our communities.

As employees, to be eligible for assistance from Scotiabank, they must actively take part in the charity/cause fundraiser. In the case of the Ducks Unlimited Dinner/Auction, employees sold VIP packages at the door the night of the event. The Bank will match funds based on the number of employees involved to a specified limit.
