Crutches for Africa

Over the weekend, Rotarians were in action in support of Crutches for Africa. Phil Smith, Keystone E-Club Rotarian and District Chair for Crutches for Africa along with Richard Comins, C4A Ambassador for District 7120 unloaded a truck and trailer with donated mobility devices which will be bound for Africa. The small team which included Dee Martonik from the Mercer club and Rotary friend Clark Taylor unpacked, sorted and organized over 228 pairs of crutches and 350 walkers.  More devices are on the way from Erie and our very own District Governor Beth Marshall will be dropping off devices today which were collected in District 7280. A total of 800 devices have been collected so far. It takes 3200 devices to fill a container to ship these much needed supplies to Africa. Stay tuned as we are looking to ramp up the district wide collection and make an even greater impact!  For more information please contact Phil Smith at pskts@comcast.net or Richard Comins at richecomins@gmail.com to find out more.

Your contribution can be as small as a $1.16 donation to your club or the Rotary Foundation. Who will you challenge to participate?
