Batesville Rotary Club Reschedules Haiti Relief Fundraiser Collections Event

Batesville, AR – Due to the threat of wintery weather on Friday, January 29th, the Batesville Rotary Club has postponed their collection of donations until Friday, February 5th.

“We’re not sure what we’ll have in regards to the weather, but it’s not looking very promising,” said Rotary Club President Mark House.  “We certainly wouldn’t want anyone getting out and driving on snow and ice, so we made the decision to back everything up one week.  That may actually be a blessing in disguise, as that will give us an additional week to promote our efforts and accept donations by mail.”

The Batesville Rotary Club is accepting donations to be forwarded to The Rotary Foundation’s Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund.  This fund was established by The Rotary Foundation to help raise money for medium to long-term rebuilding projects in Haiti following the earthquake of January 12th.  All donations are tax deductible, and donors will receive acknowledgement of their donation from the Rotary Foundation.

Those wishing to donate by mail can send a check or money order to:
