As you may have heard by now, there was a devastating 7.0 earthquake in Haiti.
News reports indicate that many government buildings, hospitals, and other infrastructure buildings have collapsed. While the U.S. government is considering sending in troops to assist, there is no doubt that immediate financial assistance is going to be needed in the area. Haiti is one of the poorest nations in the Northern Hemisphere, and it's people need our help now. If you can afford to make any donations, please make a check payable to the Rotary District 5240 Charitable Foundation. Please mail it to the Rotary District 5240 office at: 3394 Bryan Ave., Simi Valley, CA 93063. Please feel free to contact me, or Luz Maria, for any further information on the disaster and our plans to assist the area. Thank you in advance for your generosity! Yours in Service, Diane M.
