Members of the Rotary Club of Spartanburg and Columbia’s Capital Rotary Club joined forces to contribute $5,000 toward relief efforts after record rainfall amounts caused catastrophic flooding in the Palmetto State in October. The funds resulted from Spartanburg’s initial gift of $2,500, which was matched dollar for dollar by the Capital Club. The total donation was split between the Columbia chapter of the American Red Cross and Harvest Hope Food Bank – two organizations that have been active in disaster recovery efforts. Capital Rotary president David Boucher made check presentations to Denise Holland, Harvest Hope director, and to Red Cross director Rebecca Jordan on behalf of both the Upstate and Midlands clubs. Support for emergency agencies following natural disasters is common practice for Rotarians worldwide.
