Richmond Rotary Events
Vitalant Blood Drive
On September 9, 2020, Richmond Rotary’s Community Services Team sponsored a Blood Drive with Vitalant at Richmond Parkway YMCA (formerly known as the Hilltop YMCA). We collected 37 units of blood that can assist at least 111 people. Another drive is tentatively scheduled for February 2021.
Peres Elementary School
Each year, we raise $100 for each teacher at Peres Elementary School to pay for supplies and everything they need to teach their students virtually. Our efforts impacted 27 teachers this year. Rotarian Erle Brown’s late wife, Phyllis Peres Brown, was the granddaughter of the man who donated the land to house Peres school. After she passed away, Phyllis left Rotary a matching gift of $10,000 to be used to enhance teaching and learning at Peres.
