SOS in the CoS     

Several weeks ago, Mick, Sandra, Jane and Tess from the RC Karrinyup community service team set out on a mission to provide some relief from the cold for homeless people in the City of Stirling in the form of additional winter clothing. The aim was to collect a quantity beanies, socks, gloves and small blankets to be distributed by the City of Stirling in backpacks. Being 'People of Action', the team gathered items from work and friends and operated a stall to collect donated items from the local community at the Stirling Farmers Market.

Helping the Salvos 2021     

For many years our Rotary Club has assisted the Salvation Army with the Annual Red Shield Appeal as part of our service to the Community. In previous years a team of volunteers from RC Karrinyup took turns over several days at the collection desk at the shopping centre. This year, however, orgainser Ross Daniel together with Trish Lynch, Ian Mackenzie and Vic Dennis held our own community stall at the Stirling Farmers Market last Sunday. The Salvos provided an EFTPOS machine for cashless donations this year and the morning was very successful taking over $600.

Support for Socks in the City     

Homeless people struggle to find clean dry socks to wear. As a result they can develop trench foot and other problems. The best treatment is prevention and the best prevention is to wear clean dry socks. Inspired by a presentation at the recent Joint Bi District Conference, RC Karrinyup member Sandra McGuire initiated a drive to support the Socks in the City project of the RC Heirisson to supply warm socks to homeless people in Perth. Sandra and her team collected both socks and money at club meetings and at the Stirling Farmers Market over several weeks. The results were amazing!

The RC Karrinyup has provided considerable funding for the establishment of the Shed, which is now self-sufficient on an operational basis and no longer in need of support from RC Karrinyup. This project has been achieved because of Rotary and is an excellent example of Rotary making a difference to people’s lives.
