On June 27th, residents in all communities in Windsor and Essex County, were asked to place a non-perishable food item on their doorstep for picked up by volunteers. Those donations will be given to those who need it through food banks and other organizations. With the current economic situation facing us, many more people have been pushed to rely on food donations so the community came together to help. Where there is service to be done you will also find Rotarians. Members from all Windsor-Essex Clubs, Areas 9 and 10 jumped to the opportunity to be a Rotary Hero and join in this Miracle. Volunteers picked up food from porches, delivered to drop off locations and helped to sort the products. To date organizers have announced over 1,000,000 pounds of food have been donated and transports are still coming in with donations. All food will stay in the community it was collected in. Thank you to all Rotarians for helping make this a reality. We truly are People of Action.

LaunchGLOBAL, now in its second year as a Rotary sponsored pilot program, was spearheaded by Rotary volunteers from Rotary District 6400 who initiated LaunchDETROIT in 2012. The pilot was expanded this year to form additional group lending partnerships.
The Rotary Club of Detroit sponsored five entrepreneurs in 2018 and recently formed a second group of four Detroit area entrepreneurs. Through LaunchGLOBAL, eligible participants receive five free small business training classes provided by International Strategic Management (ISM). Following successful completion of the classes, entrepreneurs are formed into groups to help each other grow their businesses while receive mentoring and networking opportunities along with the opportunity to apply for a loan of up to $2,500.
According to Margaret Williamson, chair of LaunchGLOBAL, entrepreneurs in each group have the responsibility to award loans to their respective businesses. “This means taking the time get to know each other, build trust and have confidence that the loan will be repaid on a timely basis,” said Williamson. This year, the Rotary Club of Detroit’s four qualifying entrepreneurs are Khella Young of Bee Buzzed, Lilllian Quickley of Small BIZness Research and Development, Dazmonique Carr of Deeply Rooted Produce, and Timara Wheeler of Rose Royalty Collections, LLC.
