BRACEBRIDGE, ON-The Bracebridge Rotary Club is helping out local opening businesses by delivering hand sanitizer. 

According to Co-Chair of the Rotary Cares Committee, Paul Hammond they are helping provide hand sanitizer to over 200 businesses so that customers can use it when they shop.

“We know that the added costs of providing personal protective supplies come at a most challenging time for businesses.”  

Yesterday, 10 local Rotary Club members fanned out around the community and started delivering sanitizer to businesses in the Business Improvement Area (BIA), restaurants, Canada Day sponsor businesses, and other companies who are strong supporters of the Rotary Club. 

“Club members wish all businesses in the community all the best as they ‘come back’ to the new normal way of operations,” said Rotary Club President Dave Stevenson. 

Stevenson adds that now more than ever, Bracebridge residents need to support all these local businesses.

Throughout the pandemic, the club has been developing several programs to help individuals with groceries and grocery delivery services for vulnerable individuals, as well as organizations like the Manna Food Bank and the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital.
