Tornado Relief for Communities in Kentucky: Call for Donations

Tornado Relief for Communities in Kentucky: Call for Donations

Rotarians are People of Action. Throughout the world in disaster recovery situations, our compassion and commitment to service are a significant part of relief efforts. Right here, right now, your help is needed.

 The tornado that touched down in Kentucky has devastated communities in 18 counties in  District 6710. The loss of life in many small towns, such as Dawson Springs and Mayfield, is heartbreaking, and survivors have lost their communities, their homes and livelihoods. In many areas, there is limited electricity, resources for food, gasoline and supplies and medical services. Now more than ever is the time for us to live our hashtag, #Rotary Responds.

Rotary District Governor Gail Story and the leadership of District 6710 are in the process of assembling a committee to identify needs and coordinate response across affected areas.

Here’s how you can help.

  • Please make a donation, and encourage your club, club members and district to make a donation
  • Donations can be sent to the following address:

Rotary District 6710 Relief Fund c/o Sheila Stoke

7906 Westover Drive

Prospect, KY 40059

Donations will be used to help affected communities in District 6710 Kentucky. At this time, donations are not tax-deductible, a tax-deductible option may be available in the future. If you have a network to suppliers who are willing to donate supplies, or are considering sending a team of recovery volunteers, please contact Kaytlin Edwards at

Please consider helping those who have lost so much by responding with a donation. Thank you for being a Rotarian, and on behalf of District 6710 and people of Kentucky, thank you for your compassion.


Elizabeth Usovicz

Director, Rotary Zones 30 and 31
