Rotary Club of Harris County– Meeting their community’s needs

Standard

By Sharon Langer 

The Rotary Club of Harris County Georgia has a 17 year history of service to their community. I was privileged to join them this month at a summer breakfast meeting and hear about a unique project they started for persons with disabilities. I am hoping that by writing about this project other Rotary groups might be encouraged to start their own project. In partnership with a local faith based non-profit called FOCUS, residents who need ramps in order to enter their homes house in the country with long wheelchair rampare identified. These folks are unable to afford to put in the ramps and the Rotarians provide not only the materials but actually come to the homes and build the ramps. They are beautiful and functional. Please see the picture of one they built this year. The creed of Rotary is that leaders from all walks of life are united to amplify their individual contributions to make the world a better place to live and work. The Rotary Club of Harris County puts that creed to work. I want to particularly congratulate Tom Cheatham who was the fundraising chair this year for raising over $10,000 towards these endeavors.
