MENTOR

This most recent 7.2 magnitude earthquake has brought extreme pain to an already ravaged country where its people and its government are in political turmoil. Now, with more than 1,400 lost and over 6,000 injured, compounded by the start of the fall tropical storm season, loss of electricity, lack of shelter, and extreme shortages of food and supplies, Haiti is in dire need of massive assistance. Now more than ever!

Our Rotary District has always been there to elevate and support the Haitian community. And, today we once again raise our unified voice and bring together our community of business leaders and community philanthropists throughout our southern Connecticut District in support of Haiti during this extremely difficult time.

Won’t you please take a moment and join Rotary District 7980 and Rotary International in delivering the necessary comfort they so desperately require.  We thank you, in advance, for your support.

Rotary District 7980 covers the four southern counties of Southern Connecticut and is made up of 57 Rotary Clubs with almost 2,000 members. 

We are “People of Action” creating change in the world and saving lives every day while embracing the Rotary Vision:

“Together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves.”

Connect and Engage

Interested in giving back and creating an impact in your community and around the world? If so, we encourage you to connect, engage and visit a local club meeting near your home or place of business.

Or, better yet, join a service project and get involved in our story of Saving Lives.

Lynda Hammond, District Grants Chair, introduces how Rotary Saves Lives through the District’s Gift of Life Initiative.
