Over the past 42 years we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for for charities and local organizations. Please join us and support your community!

We thank you for your past, and ongoing, participation. Because of your support we have been able to provide ongoing support in our community.  Since March 2020 our club has purchased PPEs for front line workers, provided meals to the staff and residence of the Youth Emergency Shelter, treats for residents and workers in long term care facilities, supported the Bridgenorth and Lakefield Food Banks, provided the makings of Thanksgiving dinner to many of our community members and provided the “gift of Christmas” to local families through our Adopt a Family Program. 

This is all possible thanks YOU and the support of our community. 

Is your charity of choice not listed? Send an email to our Rotary Club and they will be added.
