At the October 3rd meeting of the Pawling Rotary Club, the membership voted to, once again, send a donation to help with disaster relief.  This time, the District Governor of Rotary District 7000 of Puerto Rico, Mr. José Lucas Rodríguez Fontánez will receive the funds .    A check in the amount of $1,000.00 to assist with recovery efforts from Hurricane Maria will be forwarded to Mr. Rodriguez Fontanez this week., The United States territory of Puerto Rico was devastated by this most recent storm..  With this donation, Pawling Rotary will have donated a total of $3,000.00 in humanitarian aid to hurricane recovery efforts in Houston, Florida and now, Puerto Rico. In the last several weeks, Pawling Rotary donations have been made directly to Rotary clubs in the disaster zone, or through Shelter Box, a Rotary supported international relief organization.

Jeff Ascher, President of Pawling Rotary shared a note of thanks with the membership from the Beaumont, Texas Rotary Club, which received the very first aid donation several weeks ago.  The note expressed gratitude for the much needed assistance. 

The Pawling Rotary Club raises money to support educational initiatives for children in the Pawling Community.  Additionally, they provide support for international causes that assist  children and families in need.
