Welcome to the Rotary District 5790 Website
District 5790 Disaster Relief - Texas Tornados
In recent weeks we have seen the 2024 storm season wreak havoc throughout the central and northern states.  Last night the storms hit close to home when the a powerful supercell unleashed a series of tornados that ripped through the communities of Valley View, Pilot Point, and Celina, leaving a path of destruction and at least 7 dead in its wake.  Damage was done to many surrounding communities as well.
 
The 5790 Disaster Relief team had been serving in the Houston area providing relief to flood victims.  This afternoon they returned to North Central Texas to assist in the relief efforts in the affected areas.
 
After discussions with the representatives of the Denton County Office of Emergency Management, we are offering opportunities to assist with the debris management in the Pilot Point and Valley View communities.  Click on this link for details on activities and volunteer sign-up sheets.

Rotary International Statement 

It is a tragic and sad time for the people of Ukraine and the world.
 
At Rotary, we are deeply concerned by the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and the escalating loss of life and humanitarian hardship there.  Continued military action against Ukraine will not only devastate the region, but also risk spreading tragic consequences across Europe and the world.
 
As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, we have made peace the cornerstone of our global mission.  We join the international community in calling for an immediate cease fire, withdrawal of Russian forces, and a restoration of diplomatic efforts to resolve this conflict through dialogue. 
 
In the past decade, Rotary clubs in Ukraine, Russia and nearby countries have transcended national differences and have actively engaged in peace-building projects to promote goodwill and to marshal assistance for the victims of war and violence. Today, our thoughts are with our fellow Rotary members and others in Ukraine coping with these tragic events. Rotary International will do everything in its power to bring aid, support and peace to the region. 
At Rotary we celebrate and promote diversity.
