Ukrainian Refugee Disaster Relief

The Rotary Club of Oklahoma City and its associated Rotary Club 29 Foundation announced  heir largest international disaster relief grant in its 113-year history, a gift of $42,000 to aid Ukrainian refugees.
“The members of The Rotary Club of Oklahoma City opened their hearts and provided their resources to help with the plight of Ukrainian refugees,” said club president Jerrod Shouse. “That’s what Rotarians do — they act. And a large club such as ours can act quickly and generously when we see such dire need.”
Of the funds raised, $32,000 will go directly to the Rotary Club of Warsaw, Poland with which the Rotary Club of Oklahoma City has worked on previous projects.  The other $10,000 will be contributed to The Rotary Foundation Disaster Relief Fund, which will grant financial aid through Rotary districts in and around Ukraine.
“Rotary Club 29 volunteers working through our club’s World Service Committee organized an impressive, fast, and generous response to this crisis,” said Rotary Club 29 Foundation Chair David Walters. “We are proud to support their efforts.”
With approximately 600 members Rotary Club of Oklahoma City is the third-largest Rotary Club among the 35,000 clubs worldwide and is the oldest and largest civic organization in Oklahoma.

    Hello, I just now saw a small blurb in today’s Oklahoman about this contribution. It looks like the donation window has passed. My father was a Rotarian in Ponca City OK for many years (he passed in 1983). I have been contributing to various groups to help alleviate the crisis for the refugees in Ukraine. In honor of my dad I would like to make a contribution through Rotary. Is that still possible? I truly believe ongoing donations are going to be necessary.
