Drive for Drought Assistance Project 2020.
We have a budget of $20k to distribute west of Gunnedah.
It was agreed that it would be Rotary Club to Rotary Club in cooperation with the CWA where possible. Our members have agreed to support smaller communities in our District that are doing it a bit tough as a result of the drought. The focus is on community members, and particularly those with more immediate basic needs where we might be able to lend some support.
A shortlist of clubs was identified and after consultation the four clubs, subject to their agreement, are-
Barraba Population 1537
Boggabri Population 816
Manilla Population 2500
Warialda Population 1500
We are looking to make $5,000 available to each location to be accessed by the community in the form of vouchers, debit cards or a combination of both which can be used at local businesses. Those businesses are to be determined in consultation with each Club.
Once we get the paperwork in place, we can pay the funds directly to each club within a few weeks which will enable to get the money to those in need quickly as we have the funds available
