The Hampton Rotary’s Committment to the Salvation Army
The 2015 Salvation Army Kettle Drive donations are used to help those in need in our community and the Organization wishes to thank all of the companies and individuals who contribute to this great cause. The following Rotarians listed below donated a total of $14,525.00 during the 2015 holidays. This was the highest total of any civic club that volunteered for the Salvation Army of the Virginia Peninsula.
William Andrews, III
J. Whiting Chisman, Jr.
Hampton Stationary – John Ishon
Robert H. Smith
A.G. Womble, Jr.
Lewis & Minta Wood
The above amount does not include $275.41 raised from Rotary members ringing bells and $1,500.00 from Old Point Bank’s donation to kick off the Coliseum Christmas Parade. Rotarians volunteered at various high Holiday traffic locations throughout the City.
This fundraising effort goes back almost 20 years when Robert Shuford, of our club, and the late Cap Neilson, of the Peninsula Rotary Club, challenged each other to raise the most money of all the Peninsula’s civic clubs who participate as volunteers each year. Our Rotary has raised a total of $173,740.00 since we started this project. This does not include money collected in the kettles. The Hampton Rotary Club can be very proud of our support to The Salvation Army!
