Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Our own District is very familiar with the devastation that can be caused by flooding. If you would like to help, you can make a donation to Disaster Aid USA by sending a check to Disaster Aid USA, 9817 Lanham Severn Road, Lanham, MD 20706 (designate Hurricane Harvey in memo) or by visiting their website at www.disasteraidusa.org.  This organization is operated by Rotarians, and they helped our own district recover from the flooding last year.

You can also send a donation to one of the four Rotary Districts that have been impacted by the disaster:
