A Can for the Needy in September was completed with the delivery of over 400 cans to the Salvos for distribution to Geelong's homeless.
 
This project involved four drop off points where people were encouraged to purchase a can or two extra with their shopping and to drop off those extras.
 
This came about because the Salvation Army are spending so much of their charity money on accommodation for the homeless leaving them somewhat short on food.
 
As a result Bayside Rotary Club took up the challange of finding lots of food with the September drop off.  
 
Thanks go out to any of you who were generous enough to add to that pile of cans.   
 
It is all appreciated

Change, they say it is not something we all enjoy but there is not too much we can do about it at the moment, just embrace it and learn to handle things differently.

And sometimes change can be a good thing, it can force us to think outside the square, and not to rely on doing the, same old same old.

Because of Social distancing, we cannot run our, money raising BBQ, so what can we do? Raffles seem to be a good solution to start with, quick snappy and all members involved.

This is our first $5 a ticket raffle, only 200 ticket will be sold, great chance of winning. If you would like to purchase a ticket, please get in touch, contact details are on this page.
