Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts Announced
Governor Mike has been in contact with Rotary Districts in the New York and New Jersey areas, and has developed the following plan for District 6440 clubs who wish to contribute to the relief efforts.
Financial donations may be made to The Walter D. Head Foundation of Rotary District 7490, c/o Calisto Bertin, Bertin Engineering, 66 Glen Avenue, Glen Rock, NJ 07452. All of the NY/NJ Districts are using that Foundation as their central collection point, and redistributing the funds as needed on the ground. You can also bring your check to Medinah on Saturday for the Fall Seminar Day and Pre PETS, and turn it in at registration.
With the cooperation of District 6450, and with a special thanks to President John Glueckert of The Rotary Club of Arlington Heights Sunset for providing and driving the truck, we will be collecting and loading supplies requested by The Rotary Club of Wall Street. The list of suggested supplies includes:
hats, gloves, scarves
toiletry kits - individual size toothbrush, toothpaste, mouth wash, soap, lotion
pantry items such as sugar, oatmeal, coffee, rice, potatoes, peanut butter, soups,
bags of apples & oranges
Large and XL coats and hoodies
Those attending Fall Seminar Day...please...collect from your clubs this week, and bring what you collect Saturday Morning to Medinah Banquets.
