Please follow the link below, to check out a District-5240 news article posted by our very own Leslie Bouché. The incredible work being done at the Prashanti School in Puri India, is a wonderful example of service above self and a heartwarming success story to boot. A special thanks to Leslie Bouché for sharing and for all your hard work! If you look carefully, you might just spot her amidst the many students.
 
 
 
Terri Wolfe of HELP of Ojai describing HELP’s nimble and enormous response to the Thomas Fire. 
Ojai residents were supported in 3 phases: emergency, housing, and financial.  Case management services continue and the impact of the fire is expected to last for 2-3 more years. 
Terri thanked Rotary Club of Ojai for our immediate cash award of $52,000. 
Rotary has always recognized how essential clean drinking water is for all people.  So in February, 2016, when the International Service committee of our Rotary Club of Ojai became aware of the immediate need for clean drinking water for children in a village school in India, they took immediate action.
