September PPE Newsletter written by IPP Simone Kong, Rotary Club of Central
We are in the second month of our Green in Our Hands Recycling Competition and thanks to the effort of Vice Chair IPP Annyee in promoting this competition, a further 10 clubs have signed up since the first month. There are a total of 37 clubs in the Competition and a total of 60K Green$ points have been earned so far.
The clubs will have until 15th April 2024 to earn Green$ points which will be used to redeem groceries such as rice and noodles. The winning club will get to choose the NGO to donate the groceries to. Rotary Club of the HUB Hong Kong is the club that has earned the most Green$ points up in the second month. Gather your family and friends to join in the recycling to earn more green$ points into groceries and donate to the needy! Of course don’t forget to invite the rest of the Rotary family in – Rotaract, Interact, Junioract and RCC!
