Where has the money gone??
Your Rotary District 6890 Foundation has been hard at work! We have been responding to Hurricanes with disaster relief. Many donations have been made by our great Rotary members in this District. Thanks so much!
We sent a total $11,551 to four Rotary Districts in Texas for Hurricane Harvey. $710 was actually returned by one of the Texas Rotary Districts to help our District after Hurricane Irma hit Florida.
We sent $1780 for shipping charges for a container of relief goods that was recently sent to Puerto Rico. Terri Miller has been coordinating these efforts with help from many of our Clubs and members.
We have money available to help victims of Hurricane Irma and Maria. Please let us know if you identify people in need.
We also sent $500 to Jamaica to help out the Granville Place of Safety in Jamaica, which is a safe haven for abused girls. George Robertson-Burnett personally delivered the check on a recent trip to visit our Rotary friends in Jamaica.
