News Community Rotary Club contributes to Polio Plus

Fred Berger of the Rotary Club of Franklin (R) presents Rotary District Governor Bill Parker a check for $2,200 as the contribution to PolioPlus at its Sept. 14 meeting.

Since the PolioPlus program's inception in 1985, more than two billion children have received oral polio vaccine.

Rotary's $200 Million Challenge is the Rotary Foundation's response to the two grants totaling $355 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help eradicate polio.

Every dollar given to PolioPlus will be counted toward the $200 million match.
