WOONSOCKET – The Woonsocket Rotary Club celebrated a donation of $5,000 to its sister club in Ukraine last Thursday, Sept. 8.

Woonsocket Rotary Foundation Chairperson Aram Jarret said he was looking back through archives and discovered that in 1995, the foundation donated $3,500 as “seed money” to charter the Rotary Club of Mykolaiv. He said he started communicating with the club’s president earlier this year, Andriy Cherepanov, as he learned about their humanitarian efforts to help their own Ukrainian people.
