MILLION MASK CHALLENGE - TAKE 2
What a day to jump for joy! District 7230 was part of the Million Mask Challenge Tour Take 2. We received approximately 300,000 masks on Thursday, January 14th, through the generosity of the Rossi Family Foundation and Rotarians throughout the Northeast. The masks distributed at stops in White Plains, Harlem, and Staten Island will be shared with at least fifty organizations in the New York portion of our District. This is in addition to the well over $500,000 in cash and in-kind donations that the District 7230 Rotary family has poured into our communities in response to COVID-19. Check out the local TV-news coverage on our YouTube Channel!
 
IMPORTANT CLUB TO-DO'S
  • Select your 2020-21 club leadership and enter those officers in http://www.rotary7230.org.
  • Want more money available for Rotary Foundation grants in 2022-23? Encourage every member of your club to donate at least $25 to the Annual Fund. Commit to being an Every Rotarian EveryYear club today! 
  • It's not too late to establish your club's 2020-21 goals in Rotary Club Central's Goal Center. Setting goals in the Goal Center will help your club measure its impact and is the only way that your club can be recognized with a Rotary Citation for all the good work that you do. The brief video tutorial linked below will show you how.
