Dunwoody 2019 Polio Campaign Underway

The Rotary Club of Dunwoody has supported Rotary International's initiative to eradicate polio with our hearts, hands and checkbooks since that effort started. Charter member Bob Mingus became the first Dunwoody Rotarian to receive a Paul Harris Fellow for Polio. PDG Robert and Charlene Hall, Roy Wise and Past President Laura Kann have all participated in National Immunization Days in India. And last year, thanks to the generosity of our members, we raised $40,000 and took our total giving on behalf of Polio to more than $150,000.

Our 2019 Polio Plus campaign goal is raising $25,000. This is part of Rotary International's three-year campaign to help get across the finish line with Polio eradication (we are in year 2 of that campaign). Rick has asked that all members consider donating at least $100 so that we can quickly and easily reach our goal.

Contributions count toward individual recognition as a Paul Harris Fellow of Major Donor to The Rotary Foundation. That makes this a wonderful time to review your Paul Harris Fellow status. Remember, we have a lot of matching funds. If you’re getting close to a new level of PHF, we can double your contribution and help you reach your goal. All Rotarians want to be Major Donors. Let us help you get there. If you have questions, please reach out to Rick Woods or PDG Bill Mulkey.
