The Rotary Club of Utica recently donated $1,000 to the local COVID-19 Response Fund. The fund is a joint venture between The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, Inc. and the United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica.
The money was raised through the sale of special edition New York Tough t-shirts, hoodies and coffee mugs. The apparel and mugs were emblazoned with an image designed by local graphic artist and Rotarian, Devon Hoffman, and includes five “word art” messages filling out the outline of New York State, including: “New York Tough”; “Stop The Spread”; “Save Lives”; “One Day At A Time”; and “Together We Can”.
This recent donation is part of a total of $2,800 donated so far including a previous $500 donation that went to the local COVID-19 Response Fund. The Rotary Club of Utica also made a $1,000 donation to the regional Rotary District 7150 COVID-19 Response Fund and a donation of $300 worth of meals as a ‘Thank You’ to local hospital workers.
The Rotary Club of Utica’s service projects and commitments range widely, and include events and causes through dedicated members, including Youth Exchange, Internship programs and much more.
