I am so proud of the great response from our district Rotarians with donations to the relief efforts in Texas, Alabama, and Florida. Thank you for your generosity and for the positive impact your donations will make. The most recent  devastation in Puerto and the Caribbean present another opportunity to assist our neighbors to the south.

In addition, our district clubs are working on new communication channels to funnel more specific support to clubs in Southwest Florida and Puerto Rico.  We will be sharing more information on these specific efforts in the coming weeks.  Thank you for caring, and for making a difference in lives of neighbors who have been badly disrupted by these three hurricanes.
 
An impact report detailing the contributions from our clubs will be presented. Early indicators are that we will collectively donate over $50,000 and it may even approach $100,000. You are truly Making a Difference!
