This Rotary year's theme is Serve to Change Lives.

Our club thought it would be valuable to highlight how us and our partners worked together to serve our community in different areas in the past Rotary Year:

Education Support: Gave each Burnaby High School a $1000 bursary to support incoming BC university students;
Youth and Wildlife Support: ``Ran'' a Walkathon for youth that raised over $3500 with Low Entropy, Wildlife Rescue Association of BC, and a Simon Fraser University Scholarship for Education (;
Disease Prevention Support: Funded over $6000 for COVID-19 PPE in Bali Indonesia and donated thousands to the Burnaby Hospital Foundation;
Water and Sanitation Support: Collaborated with Royal City Rotary and Monarch Place Transition Home - Operated by WINGS for the Heart of the Matter Online Auction & Raffle that raised over $70000 to Local and International Projects (such as water systems in Laos and funding for the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House BNH South House);
Environment Support: Installed $21000 of Solar Panels in Grenada for the Dorothy Hopkins Home for the Disabled with the Rotary Club of Grenada;
Economic Development Support: Furnished a School for the Deaf in Bali to help provide employment and validation to vulnerable youth that are often overlooked in society.

And not listed is many smaller project whether school lunch programs, donations to Burnaby MoreSports, or support for Covenant House Vancouver. We are grateful to be part of the Burnaby community and hope to serve the vulnerable all the more during the upcoming Rotary year!
