Fuel for Warmth is a program offered by the Minden Community Food Centre that has been supported by Minden Rotary. Rotary last year attracted funding from District 7010 and this year as the recipient of one of three prizes offered by OHTO - Ontario Highlands Tourism Organisation, funded by the Province of Ontario. This made it possible to be a platinum donor for two years in a row It is inconceivable that families go cold in our community in this day and age, but it happens. This excellent program goes a long way toward eradicating this need. Find out more about OHTO by clicking on the photo
In recognition of the important role The Minden Food Bank has in our community it has always been a major recipient of support. One of the most meaningful programs is the 'Christmas Hampers' which brings Christmas to families that may otherwise been unable to enjoy. No child in our community should go without a gift or go hungry at this special time of the year. we all need to dig a little deeper to make sure this doesn't happen. Donations to Rotary can be directed by the donor to support one or more of the many community projects. This, as many others, is a good choice
As part of the community, Rotary provides support in many ways. Contributing a float to the annual Minden Santa Clause parade accompanied by dancing Rotarians is one way of giving to the children (young and young at heart) a little seasonal joy
Minden Rotary is pleased to provide support to 5 Counties for their excellent work with children in our community that are physically disadvantaged.

The single largest contribution to the community for the past few years has been Minden Rotary's staffing the vaccination clinics. This requires the recruitment, training and support for several volunteers each day the clinic is open, for three to four days per week. This has enabled our health care workers to vaccinate as many as three hundred to five hundred people per day. The community response to the call for volunteers has been typical Minden - UNBELIEVABLE! The more that get vaccinated the safer we all are. THANK YOU MINDEN for your support
2021 in Canada, abounding in fresh water lakes, there are boil water orders in effect. These are disproportionately in indigenous communities. Minden Rotary has chosen to support the District 7010 Water First program. This program addresses a root cause for the boil water orders - shortage of trained water treatment plant operators.
