Ladyridge contacted me concerning the possibility of doing a fund drive for the victims of Katrina. I looked at the FEMA web site and they are recommending cash donations to relief organizations instead of sending material items. This allows for the organizations to issue vouchers for needed items and also use the money to purchase meals, water and other needed items. Would be members of ROC be interested in doing a fund drive to assist the relief effort? I could coordinate the collection of funds and then issue one check to the organization of our choice (I would recommend the American Red Cross as they will impact the most people) in the clubs name. This would be a short term effort of one or two weeks although the need for assistance will last for much longer. Let me know what you think and if there is enough interest I will post contact information so people can start to contribute. If each of our over 1,000 members gives $10.00 we can make a difference for many families in need.
