I’m pleased to announce D9685 has been granted a Rotary Foundation Disaster Response Grant of US$25,000 (AU$34,500) to provide prompt relief to people in D9685 in urgent need as a result of the current flooding. Rotary Clubs with members in the Windsor area (Windsor and The Ponds) are already planning to distribute Bunnings and Woolworths Gift Cards to impacted families.
This Disaster Grant is very welcome, but it won’t go very far in meeting the needs of people in the area.
Clubs in D9685 have asked how they can support people in our local area mainly centered along the Nepean and Hawkesbury River system.
RAWCS has now approved our application for a District 9685 Rotary Australia Benevolent Society project to raise funds for flood victims in our local area.
Flood Relief for Families in the Sydney Region of NSW (RABS) Project 53-2021-22 is now open to support from clubs and receive tax deductible donations from Rotarians and the public.

The D9685 Grants committee will work with clubs in the impacted areas as a panel to determine how relief will be urgently distributed and managed.
