Orchard Park Rotary makes a donation to Gift of Life

At the February 9th meeting of the Orchard Park Rotary, the club was visited by Pat Castiglia of the Hamburg Rotary Club.  She was there to speak about the "Gift of Life" program which provides life saving surgeries for children that are gravely ill and  live in countries where the needed surgery is unavailable. Since 1996 the District 7090 Gift of Life program has been able to save 41 children who otherwise would not have lived to see their teen years.   R.I. District 7090 Gift of Life is an approved IRS 501 (c)(3) and Revenue Canada as a Charitable Organization.
Pictured, President Pete Murray presents Pat Castiglia with a check.
