Winfree remarked that South Richmond Rotary has donated more than $100,000 in recent years to the fund. The South Richmond Rotary Charity Auction also benefits numerous other local charities, and the club’s charitable mission is well known locally and nationally.
Families of the Wounded Fund (familiesofthewounded.org) was established to provide financial resources in support of family members/caregivers of military service men and women who have either been wounded in combat operations or injured as the result of line-of-duty activities in support of combat operations. Many of these wounded are hospitalized locally at McGuire Veterans Hospital.
