Thank you Letter to the Club

story thumbnail
Dear St. Catharines Rotary Club,
My boys J and E are medically fragile children who see a lot of doctors at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton ON.  Being a parent who doesn’t drive and living in St. Catharines, we can have a hard time making it to important appointments.
Rotary was our saving grace.  You have helped us by loading funds onto my Presto Card so we could use the Go Bus system to get to and from Hamilton.  You also  helped us during the time of the Go Bus strike when we had appointments and even a surgery booked to help us get taxis to and from McMaster.
You have definitely helped alleviate some of the stress that comes with getting to and from Hamilton. If it wasn’t for Rotary this overstressed mom would have had a harder time getting to my children’s appointments.
Thank you.
Kelsey, Mom at Niagara Children’s Centre
