Rotary’s fundraising goal is $100,000, according to its website. “People cannot have peace without food, shelter and other growing needs. Using our virtual Market Place shopping list as a reference you’ll impact those affected by COVID both here and abroad as well as other urgent needs this year,” the site reads.
