Interact sends helpers to any event and fundraiser to help any other organization upon request. We do not ask for donations we simply offer the service as many clubs have elderly members who cannot do the work. To date (in the last 3 years) Interact has raised and donated over $20,000 to various local and global organizations and agencies including $10,000.00 for the construction of a new school in Ecuador.
