Harvey Response to LaGrange Victims

$26,239 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 167 people in 5 months
The Rotary Club of La Grange is raising money to help with the impact of the flooding in La Grange from Hurricane Harvey.  Our focus includes helping children displaced from their homes to start school, helping families who have been displaced from their homes, helping small businesses who have been impacted by the floods and cooperating with other organizations in the La Grange area that are supporting these needs .  Our initial concentration will be to help children who are starting school with school supplies, clothing and shoes and then helping displaced families with basic needs for the families. We will distribute the funds on a grant basis to individuals and organizations that request support in the La Grange/Fayette County area.  The funds will be distributed to the Rotary Club of La Grange for management and awarding of grants.
