Our latest MaxSold fundraising auction on 26 September 2020 raised over $6900 in needed funds to support our community. Thank you to all our donors of unwanted items and to all our patrons for supoorting us. Keep an eye for our next auction likely coming towards the end of October or early November.
The Kingston Frontenac Rotary Club concluded another successful charity fundraising auction on Saturday, Aug 8, 2020 when our buyers picked-up their treasures. It felt good to hear some of the stories of people looking for that one particular item for some time, others found replacement for a lost treasured item, some purchased a special gift for a love one. This fundraising project is a great example of the club’s participation in the circular economy with a charitable purpose. Donors have great items that they no longer need and our Rotarian volunteers can pick up the items directly from donors, with full CoVid precaution, those items find a new home where they are wanted and needed and Rotary raises funds help support our communities in need. A win win for all concerned and it potentially diverts still valuable items from the landfill. We are already getting ready for our next auction. We have received some fantastic donated items that will be for sale in a few weeks. Keep an eye out for our next auction.
