Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) Fulfills Million Dollar Commitment!Date Posted: Friday, October 18, 2013
TWO YEARS EARLY!
In 2006, the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) made a long-term commitment to donate $1 million to the facility upgrade and expansion of the John McGivney Children’s Centre. On Thursday, October 17, 2013 Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) presented their final donation, fulfilling this pledge two years ahead of schedule!
“We have supported the JMCC for over 45 years and are proud to be able to present a cheque in the amount of $317,600, which completes this million dollar commitment,” said Janet Kelly, President of the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918). “This donation is made possible due to the generosity of many of our members, proceeds from bequests, donations and investments within the Rotary Club of Windsor Foundation and funds generated from our premier fund-raising event, Art in the Park.”
The John McGivney Children’s Centre provides a range of rehabilitative services to over 2,300 children and youth with disabilities and special needs in Windsor and Essex County and is devoted to enriching their lives and helping them reach their full potential.
“We had outgrown our facilities and needed to significantly expand in order to meet the needs of our community,” said Elaine Whitmore, Executive Director, JMCC. “This million dollar contribution from the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) has significantly impacted our ability to continue making a difference in the lives of children faced with challenges and helping them to grow and develop the skills and abilities they need to get the most out of life.”
JMCC sincerely thanks the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) for the commitment and ongoing support to the Centre.
