The Rotary Club of Rosebud Rye is supporting Health Services in South East Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.
 
Some months ago the Rotary Rosebud Rye Furniture Warehouse, received a generous donation of many boxes of disposable gloves used for cleaning and food preparation, from Mark Phelan General Manager of Bunzl Outsourcing. These gloves were stored “until needed” by the Rotary club. 
 
The COVID-19 Health Crisis has created significant demand for protective gowns, masks and gloves etc. Many health care professionals, and hospitals need increased supplies of these items. Rotary Rosebud Rye has just donated 20,000 disposable gloves to a network on the Mornington Peninsula .
 
The network is sourcing these items for distribution to Health Care Services, in the 10 local government areas South East of Melbourne CBD, to Dandenong then through the Mornington Peninsula to Sorrento.  The gloves will find their way into Medical Centres, Nursing Homes and Hospitals throughout this region.
