Since 2006, we have been collecting pocket change in an annual campaign to raise money for polio eradication.
It may have started as loose pocket change, but through this campaign, we have donated almost $40,000 to Rotary International’s PolioPlus Program. With each vaccine costing just $.60, our C4C Campaign has raised enough money to immunize over 66,000 children! And like most everything else we do in Rotary, we turn service into fellowship.
Each year, we compete to see who can contribute the most, keeping the leader a surprise until the last day. The generous winner not only receives $100 matching funds for his individual credit at Rotary International, but also bragging rights for the upcoming year. Previous winners have included Steve Baum, Jerry Vickers, Boyd Edmiston, Bill Drake, Gail LeCroy, Steve Croomes, Amy Thompson, and Joe Kemp.
