August is Rotary Membership Month.
Each year at this time we focus on expanding our membership. The best way to do this is for Rotarians to invite their friends and neighbors to attend a Club meeting. When people see and hear what Rotary is about, membership becomes almost automatic.
Have YOU invited someone to join us for lunch? If not - why not? Let's make membership month a huge success this year!
Do you shop on Amazon?
Have you heard about Amazon Smile? https://smile.amazon.com/ it’s quite simple, log into Amazon using the smile amazon link, sign up for the Kingston North Kitsap Rotary Foundation as your supported charity and Amazon will pay .5% of your sales to our club. Everything on Amazon Smile is the same as the standard Amazon link, pricing, Prime everything …. So the question is why not use www.smile.amazon.com? It’s work free money to our club!
THANK YOU to Gale Kirsopp for this excellent tip!
On June 30th, the Coffee Oasis Board President signed the closing papers for a property in Kingston to be the newest Coffee Oasis location.
Many of you have given money, heart, and hope towards this project. You've seen the need for a place for the hurting youth of Kingston to go for community, resources, and opportunities, and our community drew together to make that happen. And now we celebrate!
Kingston’s Village Green Foundation has supported the Coffee Oasis project because of the shared heart for kids. “The vision of The Coffee Oasis to help youth off the streets, out of homelessness and into productive lives in the community aligns well with our commitment to support Kingston youth and families. We are grateful for their willingness to support Kingston’s youth who need us most.”
That is our hope; that this location will be a gift to young people who are hurting and lost, the ones who "need us most." For us at The Coffee Oasis, we also hope and pray that this project is and continues to be a gift to YOU. We hope you are blessed by investing in this project that will then bless others.
We thank you for helping make this dream a reality. $75,000 remains to be raised for renovations, and we are eager to walk through the rest of the project with our partners. We look forward to sharing news with you of the Kingston Coffee Oasis’ renovation and opening!
