Rotarians -

We have a unique hands-on opportunity on June 24th from 1-5 pm and need 30 to 35 volunteers. Family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, kids and their friends (age 13 or older), anyone you know should be asked to help participate if available. We can also earn $1,000 for the Rotary Club of Duluth Foundation. Please sign-up now, so we can make sure we reach our committed volunteer number.

Ecolibrium3 is calling for volunteers to assemble Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in a community collaboration that supports our local people, frontline workers, health systems, businesses, and nonprofits. Working with Lincoln Park manufacturer Frost River, Ecolibrium3 will use the proceeds from PPE sales to provide masks to community members, make donations to other local nonprofits, and invest in community resilience.

During each 4-hour session, 30 to 35 volunteers will assemble 6,000 face shields for use by frontline workers needing added protection from the coronavirus. Volunteers will be provided with safety and assembly training, a T-shirt and masks, and prizes purchased from our local businesses.

In true pay-it-forward style, each volunteer session will allow us to distribute 500 masks to community members and organizations and raise $1,000 for our selected nonprofit partner, The Rotary Club of Duluth Foundation.
