The Rotary Club of Peterborough Kawartha is once again sending some Valentine’s Day love this year to people in the community who especially need it.

At their breakfast meeting on January 16, 2020, Kawartha Rotarians created customized Valentine’s Day cards for clients of Hospice Peterborough.

Last February, Kawartha Rotarians created cards for residents of Rubidge Retirement Residence in Peterborough.

Hospice Peterborough offers support to individuals and families living with, or affected by, life-threatening illness and grief.

The non-profit organization is partially funded by the Ontario government and also relies on community donations and volunteers to deliver its services and programs.

Hospice Peterborough executive director Hajni Hos and board president Shelley Barrie, who attended the Rotary meeting and provided an update on the organization’s new facility, thanked the Rotarians for their thoughtfulness.

While Kawartha Rotary supports large charitable projects every year (most recently raising funds through the annual Kawartha Rotary Christmas Auction for an outdoor musical instrument play area at the Riverview Park and Zoo in Peterborough), they also regularly take on what they call “small projects” to support the community.
