Rotary clubs work together to get basics for babies

Close to $6,000 worth of baby items handed over to Food Bank

The Basics for Babies Pancake Breakfast at the Native Sons Hall last Saturday was an overwhelming success.

“Basics for Babies gives the four Comox Valley Rotary clubs the chance to work together on a community project and this year it was very successful,” said Deborah Nolan, Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial.

“This was our fourth time and it seems to be building each year. We have been very lucky to have the support of the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra from the start and over the years a number of musicians have donated their time and talents to the event. This year the Sue Medley and John Mang duo joined us and everyone enjoyed that.

“Thank you to all of the people who came out and made donations. With your generosity we were able to hand over close to $6,000 worth of baby items like food, formula, baby bottles, diapers and cash to the food bank. Thank you from all the Rotary clubs of the Valley.” – Rotary
