Interact clubs raise Pennies for Polio
Pennies Polio Rotary

The Interact clubs at Bradwell Institute, Liberty County High School and First Presbyterian Christian Academy are hosting Pennies for Polio fundraisers through the end of March.

For as little as 60 cents worth of vaccine, a child can be protected from polio for life.

Donations at any of these Interact clubs now go even further.

Every dollar Rotary International commits to polio eradication will become three dollars, thanks to a 2-to-1 match from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Interact Club gives students ages 12-18 the chance to make a difference while having fun.

All Interact clubs carry out two service projects a year — one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding.

The Rotary Club of Hinesville sponsors all three Interact clubs in Liberty County.

Ending polio has been a major project of Rotary International since 1979, when the organization conducted its first vaccination effort in the Philippines. Rotary reports that it and several partners have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide.
