The Club also reported other donations that brings up the total amount of collections to $11,007.47. The funds are intended to be used to benefit the Ambergris Caye via different community programs.
Rotarian Diane Tabony thanks the community’s involvement on the island, which allows the Rotary Club to assist San Pedro Town in different areas. According to her, helping the Polyclinic is always one of their top priorities. They believe that the island’s main medical institution must be well prepared to render adequate services. As to the success of the dollar drives, the Rotary Club is deeply touched by the community demonstrating their appreciation and generosity in their donations during the drive.
A couple of instrumental donors that have helped tremendously via generous donations include Mahogany Bay Village, who donated $1,300 and Bellingham Washington Sunrise Rotary, which gave $1,000. Along with the Rotarians $3,900 contribution to their club fund, this brings the total to $11,007.47.
