Rotary Donates air purifiers as part of the Bushfire Recovery Effort
15 July 2020
Rotary Clubs have banded together to raise $22,500 for 45 air purifiers donated to Alpine Health as part of the Bushfire recovery effort. The air purifiers are to be used across hospitals and aged care facilities in Mt Beauty, Bright and Myrtleford.
Donations were included from Rotary Clubs of Mount Beauty, Yarrawonga, Mulwala, Heidelberg, Fremantle, Myrtleford, Bright and the Rotary District 9790 Bushfire Recovery Fund.
President of the Rotary Club of Mt Beauty, Mark Lucey said “the club wanted to donate something that would useful to the community.”
Nick Shaw, Corporate Services Manager said “we are incredibly grateful for the generosity of the Rotary Clubs and in particular the Rotary Club of Mt Beauty who have led the project.”
During bushfire season, smoke can cause a number of breathing issues in patients and elderly residents. Having a number of air purifiers that can be moved across the sites allows Alpine Health to better the conditions for patients, residents and staff during these times.
