Disaster Relief Fund Announcement
District 6420 New Disaster Relief Fund
On January 22, 2022, the Corporate Board of District 6420 recommended a Disaster Relief Fund be established in the amount of $50,000.  
The purpose of the District 6420 Disaster Relief Fund is to provide grants to Rotary Clubs in District 6420 to support relief and recovery efforts in their local communities that have been impacted by natural disasters during the past six months. 
Grants funds will be used to provide basic relief and recovery items (such as water, food, medical supplies, household supplies, and clothing) or services (such as debris removal, temporary shelter, health care, mold remediation, and cleaning).  
Nothing Reads Like a Book!
District 6420 – 2022-2023 District-wide Service Project – Nothing Reads Like a Book!
As part of our District’s new strategic plan, we are committed to implementing a District-wide service project each Rotary year. 
For the 2022-2023 Rotary year, the District-wide service project will extend the good work of our District’s Literacy Committee by asking each Rotarian in our District to donate one new book to a local library. 
As a result, we hope to donate more than 1400 books to local libraries and hopefully make a difference in the lives of many youth and adults.

Any Rotarian to whom the policy applies will also be required to review RI’s Youth Protection Guide, complete RI’s Protecting Youth Program Participants online course, and undergo a background check (paid for by the District) prior to working with youth.
