At its November 2017 meeting, the Shuswap Rotary Club donated $25,404 to five non-profit organizations and four elementary schools in support of programs these groups provide in the Shuswap area. These are essential services being provided by those receiving the financial support, much of which comes through caring individuals volunteering their time and expertise.
Funding for these programs results from our Auction and Gaming Funds.
