Students initiate Dollar for Water

The Mark Isfeld Interact Club recently launched its newest fundraising campaign.

The Mark Isfeld Interact Club recently launched its newest fundraising campaign.

Supporting a Rotary-founded project, the students have initiated a Dollar for Water. From a Valley to a Valley campaign. The club is asking for residents of the Comox Valley to each donate $1 to the cause.

The money raised will go toward the building of a water well in the Comayagua Valley, Honduras. This well will provide clean and safe drinking water to the surrounding six communities and serve approximately 1,500 people.

The local and international Rotary clubs will quadruple the funds raised, resulting in your $1 becoming $4.

All of the donations received will go toward building materials. There are no administrative fees, and the residents of the Comayagua valley have volunteered for construction.

The materials required for construction will be purchased from Honduran businesses to support local workers and help to build a strong and sustainable community.

The club has set up donation drop boxes in Comox Valley businesses.  Your donation can be given at the Medicine Shoppe, Budget Blinds, T. Dale Roberts Notary Public, Comox Valley Co-op Cardlock, Dr. Ernie Von Schilling, Signature West Floor and Window Fashions, Groomingdales Suite, FAS Delivery Service, Signature Wines, Bodyworx Physiotherapy, Eby’s Business Service, Comox Valley Co-op and Mark Isfeld Secondary School.

More locations will be announced shortly. Stay up to date by liking the A Dollar for Water Facebook page.
