Toronto East Rotary News

Despite the pandemic, Toronto East Rotary is still meeting -- on Zoom of course! Last Thursday (May 7th), Amanda Maragos talked about changes at Philip-Aziz Emily’s House and their support of Michael Garron Hospital during the COVID-19 crisis. Over 20 Rotarians and friends listened to her speak.  Thank you Amanda!

 

Toronto (March 31, 2020) – The kids are at home from school and so many parents are struggling to keep them entertained. Under normal circumstances, parents enjoying spending time with their kids on weekends, planning family outings, projects and gatherings that make the weekends whiz by. During this pandemic, parents are working from home and already stressed about the situation, trying to keep their kids busy all day, every day is a daily challenge.
 
The Toronto East Rotary club is trying to provide a helping hand with both an educational and entertaining interactive literacy program. The Free Reading Program (FRP) is an effective online literacy program for early readers and English Language Learners around the world. The FRP provides a robust Kindergarten to grade 6 level Reading program and includes over 3,600 interactive reading, spelling and grammar lessons. Children use a computer or tablet, that they are already so comfortable using, to learn in a fun way. It becomes like a game! The parents are able to track their progress and see areas where they excel and where they need more work. Parents report that it has even helped children with autism and dyslexia.
 
For a number of years, Toronto East Rotary has been a proud sponsor of the Free Reading Program (FRP) FreeReadingProgram.com. It's available at no charge to anyone with an internet connection and a computer or tablet. They are encouraging all parents to log on and help their kids learn in a fun and interactive way.
 

Last week, TERC members plus family and friends helped sort food at the Daily Bread Food Bank. Over 2,500 pounds (1,130 kg) of food was sorted. A new record for our group!

Polio Anywhere is a Risk to Children Everywhere

Polio cases have declined rapidly since 1985, but the fight isn't over. Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, and for as little as $0.60, a child can be protected against the virus for life. If we don't finish the fight right now, more than 10 million children under the age of five could be paralyzed by polio in the next 40 years.
 
Since the global initiative began more than 30 years ago, Rotary and its partners have reduced polio cases by more than 99 percent worldwide. There are only two countries where the wild polio virus has never been stopped: Afghanistan and Pakistan.
 

It’s Achievable: 

There is no cure for polio, but the polio vaccine successfully prevents cases.

End Polio Now!
