Foundation Minute
The buzz this past week has been all about Hurricane Dorian’s obliterating destruction. Responding to the plight of their fellow human beings, Rotarians world-wide are awash with plans and activities aimed at providing immediate comfort and relief for victims in the Bahamas and other areas devastated by Dorian. 
The Rotary Clubs of Prince Edward Island, Prince Edward Island, Canada, in partnership with ShelterBox Canada, are raising funds to provide temporary shelters and emergency supplies to the Bahamas. Tents and useful tools are among relief items to be distributed to victims of Dorian in the Abaco Islands community of Marsh Harbour. Shelter Box, an international NGO started by Rotarians, provides shelter for a family for one year. For more information about ShelterBox’s Dorian initiative:
On Wednesday, September 4, members of the Deerfield Beach Rotary Club, D-7020, Deerfield, FL, loaded several trucks of supplies headed for the Bahamas. Club member Avis Swenson marveled at the helpful attitude of volunteers stating, “The Bahamas is in our district, so they have arranged to have a freighter take four containers to the Bahamas, and the freighter has a crane…for such a short time frame, it’s amazing the outpouring of people.”
The Rotary Club of Key Largo Sunset, D-6990 collected non-perishable goods and monetary donations all day on September 4 and 5 at the Publix Key Largo parking lot. Working with the Rotary Club of Upper Keys, they are collecting and transporting the donated items to Miami from where they will be shipped to the Bahamas.
Upper Keys, FL Rotarian, Don Horton collected emergency supplies worth over $10,000 for hurricane recovery supplies. “We are going to collect monetary donations from all the Rotary Clubs in District 6990.”
Donation can also be sent to Rotary’s Disaster Relief Fund via The Rotary Foundation.
The Immediate Past RI President Barry Rassin, a Bahamian resident is coordinating donations from clubs.
