Harvey Relief Fund

 
Rotary District 6200
Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
 
Anyone or any club wishing to donate through our district to hurricane relief efforts can write checks payable to The Rotary District 6200 Foundation with the note "Harvey Relief Effort." All donations of $250 or more will receive a letter with the Foundation ID number. I am also forwarding a note from our Disaster Chairpeson, Larry Agee. Please read his note and the flyer attached. DAUSA is also asking for funds to continue their great work.

Larry Agee with DAUSA has a Team in Houston (our Texas Response Team ) with a Trailer working in the Cypress (Houston) area today where a small tornado hit. Our DAUSA response team is made up of many Rotary District leaders there. Rain Water and flooding continue to spread.
 
I have the Louisiana Response trailer moved to high ground in Lake Charles LA. I am attending the EOC (Emergency Operation Center) meeting regularly here as a Disaster Relief Org and initial guest of Mayor of Sulphur a Rotarian . I am working with Local SAR (Search and Resuce), and CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) groups. Our Local EOC has requested no agency send assets to Houston yet as we are expected to get 30" plus of rain in next 2 days and will have our own problems here. House and neighborhoods already under water in SWLA, Ditches rivers etc have been full for 2 days and the brunt of the storm is just hitting us.
 
District 6200 , Disaster Aid USA rescue boat is being built, but i have a back up response boat that has been offered up to the EOC for use. If it is not needed here then it will head to Houston (EOC and Voads , Volunteer Organization Assisting in Disaster) already notified there also.
 
Disaster Aid USA a Rotary club project Supported by District 6200 and 6190 plus our Houston districts are hard at work. If you come across info you think we need please pass it along. If we dont answer txt or call immediately be patient as we are working hard.
 
Thanks for all the support guys it will be needed.
