The catastrophic flood devastating Louisiana is now the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy. There have been 40,000 homes damaged as a result of the flooding.  To repair these homes much work will need to be done like removing existing drywall and plywood before mold sets in.
As we state at the opening of each and every Rotary meeting the Rotary Club of Canton is "the finest Rotary Club in the World". Now is the time to prove this statement.  Let us all consider making a donation no matter how big or small to help the people of Louisiana.  I would like to challenge each and every Rotarian of the Rotary Club of Canton to match my donation of $50.00.  Can you imagine if each and every one of us made a donation just exactly how many residents of Louisiana we could help?
The Rotary Club of Salem is spear heading this humanitarian project and all checks are to be made payable to the Salem Rotary Foundation. We ask that your contributions be sent to: the Rotary Club of Canton, 203 Cleveland Avenue N.W., Canton, OH 44702.  The deadline date to make a contribution will be Friday, September 23, 2016.  At this time, the Rotary office will forward all contributions to the Salem Rotary Club. Tax receipts will be issued for personal donations.  Together we can make a difference.
