  1. Alliston & District Humane Society
  2. Candlelighters Simcoe
  3. Empower Simcoe
  4. Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka
  5. International Teams Canada
  6. The Goldenaires Seniors Choir
  7. Society of St. Vincent de Paul
  8. Mother Teresa of Calcutta Refuge
  9. Big Brothers Big Sisters Orillia
  10. Coldwater Canadiana Heritage Museum

Congratulations to these groups for the work that they are doing to support seniors, children and the community. RTOERO members are involved as volunteers in each of these projects. Cheque presentations will take place over the next few weeks. Thank you to all of the groups who sent in an application. The deadline to apply for the 2025 District 17 local grants is December 1, 2024. Applications will soon be available on the website.
