Rotary Club's Disaster Relief Effort
From our President, Chris Dardeau

Welcome to the home of The Rotary Club of Abbeville, Louisiana. 

The recently concluded rain storm has caused extensive flood damage to our home parish (county) of Vermilion.  This storm has left many residents homeless and living in shelters.  The outpouring of support from our Rotary family and other caring individuals and businesses has confirmed to me the good in humanity.

Our Rotary Club has received numerous offers of help and our needs are changing each and every day.  The Vermilion Parish first responders are completing the rescue portion of their response and we should begin the recovery process within the next couple of days.  We have partnered with the New Life Church to handle all commodity contributions received.  Those kinds of contributions continue to flow into the community and a need still exists.  As we enter the recovery phase of this disaster, our Rotary Club's leadership team is starting to conduct a needs assessment and monetary contributions will be needed to fulfill those needs as it allows us the diversity to handle the many issues of those affected by this flood. Today's social media is allowing us to connect with people like you who wish to make a difference. Please visit our Facebook site for future news releases.

Donors who choose to make a difference may mail their monetary contributions to:

Checks should be made payable to the Rotary Club of Abbeville.  We are proud to say that 100% of all contributions will be spent on disaster relief for Vermilion Parish residents.  Our Rotary Club does not take any administrative fee, therefore every penny of your gift will serve a valuable purpose to those unfortunate victims of this flood.

Thank you for your kindness as we continue to uphold our motto of Service Above Self.
