A number of local and international non-profit organizations received a much-needed boost in funds this month from the Rotary Club of White Rock.

At a May 16 lunch meeting, the club presented Sources CEO David Young and director Denise Darrell a $25,000 cheque towards the purchase and installment of an elevator for the food bank.

Another $25,000 will be presented next year, as well.

An $11,000 joint contribution with Rotary International was given to the Shanti Uganda Project, a birthing house in Uganda, which provides antenatal, natal and postnatal care for women.

The Canadian Network of International Surgery and ACCES Kenya each received $3,000.
