FIRE RELIEF FUND

In response to the catastrophic loss of homes, businesses, and livelihoods for many Oregonians, Rotary established a Fire Relief Fund to help fire victims rebuild their lives. Today we all look in anticipation at another fire season that looks like it might have continued service opportunities. Rotary is staying tuned and watching the news.

COVID –Rotary to the Rescue!

Rotarian and friends volunteered for Vaccination service with Lane County Public Health. It was very successful and quite satisfying to help vaccinations at Lane County Conference Center, Lane Community College and Autzen Stadium. And seemed to bring comfort to those in lines for vaccinations seeing Rotarians servicing. If Rotary was there it was going to be OK.

HOMELESS RELIEF

know Eugene Rotary Club has been funding and constructing these homeless shelters to provide a safe place to sleep. COVID rules have slowed the process down, but the club and members continue to be ready to jump back on this project whenever allowed to finish the last few Conestoga Huts. Stayed tuned. The club will let eager volunteers ASAP when the green flag is shown.
