On January 20th, the Sanford-Springvale Rotary Club held a “January Thaw" event to raise funds and donate cold weather clothing items for the homeless. Organized by PDG Elias Thomas and his daughter, Past Club and Co-President, Heather Beaupre, the $30 tickets gave attendees food and drink samples at the local KAI Asian Fusion restaurant in Springvale.  A portion of the fee went to support the program of club member, Colleen Adams, the Community Relations officer for the Sanford Police Department with responsibilities for assisting the city’s homeless population.   A grant program from EXIT Realty Corp. International matched $4,000.00 of Net Proceeds raised and donated by EXIT Associates which included a very generous donation by EXIT Key Real Estate of Shapleigh. In all, nearly $10,000 was raised to benefit the homeless in Sanford.

Thanks to all of the Sanford-Springvale Rotarians and Partners Bank who donated 142 adorable stuffed animals to be given out to youngsters getting their COVID vaccine. Past District Governor Peggy Belanger, who works at the Sanford Vaccination Clinic asked for donations when the Clinic ran out recently. We responded with a pile of furry, cuddly friends who will for sure provide a whole lot of comfort - that's what Rotarians do!

The Aubuchon Foundation of the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts awarded the Rotary Club of Sanford-Springvale a grant of $2,200.00. This donation was part of the “WEAre The Difference” campaign from the W.E. Aubuchon Company. Troy Richard, Sanford Aubuchon manager and Sanford-Springvale Rotarian initiated the request for the grant.

The Aubuchon Foundation, the charitable arm of the 102-store W.E. Aubuchon Company based in Westminster, Massachusetts has donated over $100,000 to community organizations throughout the Northeast providing assistance to those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Founded by William E. Aubuchon in 1908, Aubuchon Hardware is the oldest family-owned hardware store chain in America. With more than 100 stores in New England and upstate New York, they’ve been a local mainstay for generations. Their company philosophy is “to serve those who depend on us and build on our heritage with passion and humility.”

The Sanford-Springvale Rotary Club is most grateful for this grant and will use the funds to support individuals and organizations in our community.
On December 17th and 18th, 20 Rotarians and 8 family and friends rang bells for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Drive. They raised a total of $2,757.37, which will go a long way in helping those in need in our community. At one point, a man in a car drove up and handed one of the ringers a bill. When the ringer went to put the bill in the kettle, they saw it was a $100 bill. Thanks to all that helped ring and for all those who gave!
Rotary International has recently added improving the Environment to areas of focus. To help advance that goal, they have urged Rotary Clubs around the world in the month of September to participate in cleanups of oceans, lakes, and rivers. As part of this effort, members from the Sanford-Springvale Rotary Club helped clean up portions of the Mousam River and Number One Pond. Pictured is a portion of the crew.
