Club: Rotary Club de Pontal
Event: 2nd Campaing for Donation of Milk
Contribution to the polio plus fund: R$106,15 = US$34.02, transformed in US$102.16 with the matching of the Gates Foundation, being enough to vaccinate 170 children.
Message (from Claudete Sulzbacher): Our congratulations to president Nelson Alves de Oliveira, secretary Gilton Nogueira de Almeida and to all club members of Rotary Club de Pontal, for the campaign to collect donations of milk at Supermercado Carneiro, in the city of Pontal, state of São Paulo, to benefit Lar dos Velhos Dona Albertina Schmidt (NGO for old age people) and SEAK – Sociedade Espírita Allan Kardec (Spiritual Society for charity), that received 123 liters of milk, corresponding to R$276,75. The director of the supermarket, Mr. Paulo Carneiro, also participated. And this is the project that now is registered as an event to help to end polio, because the club has made a donation to help to end polio, in our challenge of projects, and their donation can help to vaccinate 170 children. It is a difference, for sure… giving double meaning to an already important project.
