Here are some examples of what Woodstock-Oxford Rotary members do to Make a Difference in our community.
Consider joining us if you want to help.
 
Rotary of Woodstock-Oxford has been working to see how it can help alleviate Homelessness in Woodstock for some time now.
A group of Rotary members have been helping out at the Community Free Table for about a year and a half now.
Through helping out with the table we were exposed to the hardship that some members of our society have to go through in life.
Homelessness is one of the things you will hardly see until you start working at the Community Free Table and start talking to the people being served by the table.
Here we see people coming to the table that have no shelter with heat and safety, we see people with frozen hands, were there fingers are pure white and swollen that it is scary to see, were their skin is starting to peal off their fingers because of the frost.
Most persons in daily life never see these things.
And they are not the only people that show up, also people that have an apartment but don't have enough money left for food.
Some people come to have someone to talk to.
It is for this reason the Rotary of Woodstock-Oxford has started a process to see how we can help the shelterless people and others. It all started because one member( Adrienne Augustine) of the Rotary of Woodstock-Oxford, her vision is to align with our community to help form a PathWay Into Prosperity. Through consultation we found Woodstock Tiny Homes Community to be the most urgently needed stepping stone to help people transcend out of homelessness.
 
Today was a beautiful sunny day with as many as 50 or more person coming out to take advantage of the Community Free Table.
Thanks to the volunteers and persons that donated food, there were hotdogs, Kentucky Fried Chicken, salads, yogurt, coffee, store supplied cookies and cake, and vegetables like potatoes, lettuce, peppers, carrots, apples, pears, tomatoes and other items for people to take home free of charge.
Every person that is in need of food is welcome to come and get some for free.
Since there are many persons that have landed on hard times, these donations are very much appreciated.
If you would like to participate in volunteering or want to donate money or other items, please contact us.
 
 

Yesterday our first shipment of urgently needed medical supplies was taken to the logistics warehouse in Mississauga to pack and shrink-wrap boxes on skids for air transport to Beirut.

It has been a challenge to ensure the documents and consignee details are accurate and done in such a way as to ensure items get to their proper destination, but thanks to the tenacity and many phone calls by Dr Brad Petrisor, the shipment is now ready to go.

Thanks to Ronald Farra, PP Beirut ...

Rotary to Match Community Donations for Food Vouchers in Oxford*

Woodstock Rotarians have committed to help with Covid-19 challenges and are asking the community to join them. For each dollar donated, Rotary will match the amount, with proceeds going to purchase groceries and food vouchers, for families who require support at this time. You can donate online here: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/12109

“At first, we looked at having a central food donation area with grocery distribution available to those who needed assistance,” said Steve Zehr, Woodstock-Oxford Rotary President. “But as we investigated things, it seemed that this would not be wise with the isolation issues we are all facing.”

“After discussions with local service agencies, it seemed more logical to work with groups already established to help people,” he continued. “So, we are happy the United Way Oxford is helping us, since they are working with community partners to identify pressing and immediate community needs.”

Woodstock-Oxford Rotary has already distributed 50 bags of groceries door-to-door, to families with school-age children, needing support. Rotary has also donated two shipments of gloves to our local Woodstock Hospital. Likewise, the Woodstock Club has supported the Salvation Army and Food Bank programs.

If you want to help your neighbour, you can donate online and receive a CRA Tax Receipt at:
https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/12109 
or: www.WoodstockOxfordRotary.org 
(Select the Donate links to contribute and Make a Difference).
*The Rotary match will be up to $8000.
