How We Can Help
La Grange Relief Fund
Rotary Club of La Grange is raising money to help with the impact of the flooding in La Grange from Hurricane Harvey.  Our focus includes helping children displaced from their homes to start school, helping families who have been displaced from their homes, helping small businesses who have been impacted by the floods and cooperating with other organizations in the La Grange area that are supporting these needs .  Our initial concentration will be to help children who are starting school with school supplies, clothing and shoes and then helping displaced families with basic needs for the families. We will distribute the funds on a grant basis to individuals and organizations that request support in the La Grange/Fayette County area.  The funds will be distributed to the Rotary Club of La Grange for management and awarding of grants.

Shelterbox Response Team
I am being deployed into Harvey as Shelterbox Response Team Member along with fellow Shelterbox Response Team Bruce Heller Rotarian from Dallas. Please keep me in the loop and please reach out for help. Shelterbox will be continually updating its operational plan going forward.
We have Shelterbox Ambassadors, Response Team Members, and Rotarians that are stepping up to help.  I have been in contact the last several days with FEMAs mass care managers in DC.
We have the logistic chain open and are moving a significant amount of assets forward via air cargo from the UK.
We all know this is a significant event and as FEMA Administrator Brock Long said "This is a community response”.  All help is needed from all sources to all causes in the upcoming days as this event continues to unfold.
