Update on our Rotary donation from Tom McConnon

Just an update that your prayers for St. Vincent in the West Indies have been “Heard”.  La Soufrière has been quiet lately and the water supply is back on line. Our Legendary Rotary Club of New York raised more than $2000, and the Rotary Club of Harlem has also raised funds to help those harmed by the Volcano. Dozens of other Rotary clubs have been very generous in sending supplies and money. St. Vincent is home to two Rotary Clubs, The Rotary Club of St Vincent and Rotary Club of St Vincent South as well as the Rotaract Club of Kingstown.  There is also a Rotary club in Bequia,  a small island 10 miles off the south coast of St Vincent. It is estimated that over 10,000 hours of service has been extended over the last weeks. The Rotary clubs there are very involved in many aspects of relief including such as:
 
Receipt of donations at the Port
 
Warehousing and Inventory of same
 
Transport of items to shelters… water, food etc.
 
Transport of hot meals where available
