Disaster Relief Committee Members

Works closely with the District Governor and Club Presidents including Rotaract and Interact Clubs to coordinate logistical preparation and training for relief efforts in
the event of future disasters or emergencies. The Committee has a network of strategic partnerships and alliances in place with several key resources such as the American Red Cross, County EOCs, and VOADs so that the District is prepared in advance to assist, if so needed, the multitude of communities throughout Northeast Florida for certain relief/recovery programs; and, when requested, around the world. In addition, the District 6970 Committee has developed a unique alliance with ShelterBox USA and its affiliates which provides a rapid-deployment system to deliver certain vital services and humanitarian relief to disaster-impacted families and individuals throughout the world.
