Capital Rotary Drive Helps Answer Emergency Blood Appeal

In the middle of an emergency appeal facing critical blood shortages, Capital Rotary’s summer blood drive collected 65 units to benefit up to 195 people.  Rotarians (from left) John Guignard, Chris Ray, Blake DuBose and Bryan Goodyear await their turn to participate in the service project that’s supported the American Red Cross with 516 blood donations – potentially saving 1,548 patients’ lives – over the past seven years.  “Thanks to our volunteers and donors, we lived up to Rotary International’s 2017-18 motto of ‘Making a Difference’,” said DuBose, president of the Columbia-area club.

Rotary has Heart Sumter Rotary Submission

 2nd Row Center Box, 2nd Row Left Box  Comments Off on Rotary has Heart Sumter Rotary Submission
Apr 242017
 
The Sumter Rotary Club’s Rotary Has Heart community service project is our Farm-to-Table event.
In this, our fourth year of putting on this event, we sold close to 1,000 tickets for $30 each, and raised more than $20,000 to support 4 charities: The CART Fund (founded by members of our club), 4H, United Ministries, and the Shaw Air Force Base’s Warm Heart Fund. Each of our 80 club members was expected to sell 10 tickets, and most did just that.
The event took months of planning by a committee of 6 senior Rotarians and involved several hundred hours of volunteer work.  The event was heavily promoted in both the local newspaper and radio station–thanks to club members who manage those media outlets.
We had 15 sponsors as well as 12 local restaurants and food producers who donated their wares. This was clearly a whole-community effort.
This project not only helped those in need, and helped improve Rotary’s image in the greater Sumter community, it also provided a fun event for community residents who look for things to do without having to travel to Columbia or elsewhere.
