The Rotary Club of Brampton South has been playing a pivotal role in the City of Brampton since July 30, 1974. Our projects are ongoing, and as the Rotary Club of Brampton South grows and evolves “together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
Building on the Rotary’s value of improving lives and creating a better world, the RCBS has been continuously supporting the Peel Memorial /Brampton Civic Hospital with donations exceeding $200,000. During the COVID-19 pandemic, $12,000 was donated to the hospital to assist in patient care.
The Boys and Girls Club is an agency which thrives to provide a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life. In collaboration with Turner Fenton Secondary, our Rotary Club has been providing annual scholarships to 2 students who are pursuing post-secondary education for the past 6 years.
The Family Life Resource Center is a women’s shelter providing an interim home for women and their children who are fleeing gender-based violence. To date, our club has provided both volunteer hours, as well as financial support of over $6,000. This money was used for improving the building infrastructure such as the upgrading of the security/intercom system within the agency. In aspiring to bring a ray of joy and hope to the children and youth living in the shelter, our club hosted a “Literacy Evening” in collaboration with Rotary’s education and literacy month. This was a fun-filled evening which made a difference to all who attended.
The COVID-19 Rotary Mask distribution has been very successful during November of 2020 in getting out in the Brampton South communities that save lives. Our goal is to have everyone in our community wear a mask in public and to promote all Public Health measures for COVID-19 prevention. This mask will best help the communities to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus to other people even if you are asymptomatic and vice versa.
