Rockport Rotary Club has been busy supporting our community since Hurricane Harvey came to town.
  • A distribution point for free supplies was setup at the Coldwell Banker offices with supplies from the clubs in Harlingen and Brownsville.
  • This was added to with a plane load of supplies from a club in Hawaii via a private plane landing at the airport.
  • Rotarians from Brownsville, Harlingen, Corpus Christi, San Benito and San Antonio came to be workers at the distribution point and cleaning yards.
  • District 5930 has accepted donations from clubs and Rotarians from around the world and our community has received some of those funds.
    • Funds to Odyssey Afterschool Enrichment Program to continue their efforts with after school care and enrichment.
    • Funds to Rockport Volunteer Fire Chief Steve Sims to replace lost housing. This was in partnership with a friend from Austin who also raised funds.
    • Funds to each campus in ACISD for teacher supplies as they returned to their classrooms.
  • Facilitated a distribution of specially loaded back packs to special needs children affect by Harvey.
The Rockport Rotary Club continues to provide service to our community and fellow survivors of Hurricane Harvey. Our service is not yet done and we are "Rotary Making a Difference".
