Three Rotarians from District 7910 will be participating in a relief mission to Puerto Rico Feb 2-5. Terri Banerjee from the Rotary Club of Framingham, Michael Dexter Smith from the Rotary Club of Weston Wayland (both pictured) and Shikha Dhiyani from the Rotary Club of Framingham.
 
This team of 3 from District 7910 along with the Rotarians from the Liberty NY Rotary Club, Operation Endeavor and Wings of Michael will be traveling to Moca, Puerto Rico for a Hurricane Relief Mission and participate in relief effort activities coordinated by the Moca Rotary Club and other partners on the ground.  Activities will include aiding in food and clean water distribution, emergency shelter construction, flu and tetanus vaccination clinic and toy distribution to children who sustained total losses during the hurricane. 
 
A district-sponsored district grant has been approved and we are actively seeking donations from clubs, individual Rotarians and community members to support this $50,000 project. As part of this district grant, the district will contribute $25,000 of its DDF to the supplement the donations collected by Rotary, Rotaract and Interact Clubs. Rotarians from the hurricane committee will be reaching out to clubs throughout the district to schedule a presentation about this project.
 
100% of all funds raised for these hurricane relief efforts will be donated to the Moca Rotary Club to purchase and distribute supplies and administer vaccines for disease prevention to those families in need.  Donations will be tax deductible and should be sent to:
