The reason we Rotarians join this kind of club is to help! The list below is a testament to the dedication to Glen Ellyn and the surrounding area. We have supported many non-profit organizations since our charter in 1943. This year, in early April and May, we gave away 10 scholarships totaling about $25,000 to students at Glenbard South and Glenbard West as well as students from Technical Center of DuPage.
We also donated $3,000 to shelter Box, an organization that provides for families that are without a home or belongings because of disasters like hurricanes, floods, and war.
The list below is some of the organizations we supported in the last two weeks of presentations. The donations add up to approximately $15,000. The names with the organizations are those accepting the awards for their organizations. There are more but they will be awarded at another date.
