Rotary members have a long history for tackling projects others have thought to daunting. The End Polio Now is a prime example. Through our worldwide partners, thousands of volunteer manhours, millions in donations, grit and determination only two countries in the world are now considered endemic with the polio virus.
 
Our world is now in the grip of yet another disease which has become the Covid 19 Pandemic. Like the Rotarians before us, Rotary members in Rotary District 5790 are launching yet another disease elimination project right here in our own home county, Denton, Texas. The effort has two main thrusts:
 
  1. To do all we can to support those stricken with the disease and the resulting pandemic economic crises.
  2. To eradicate the disease through vaccination by encouraging the community to participate and provide volunteers.
Rotary, and our friends and family volunteer to help End Covid in Denton County
 
Members from the 14 Denton County Rotary clubs are volunteering however they can, to contribute to ending the disease. Some are sponsoring Convalescent Platelets Drives for those stricken with the disease. Some are helping increase depleted blood and platelet supplies through blood drives. Some are donating to local agencies supporting community members directly impacted by the pandemics economic downturn. Others are focusing on volunteering to help the Denton County Health Department orchestrate their Vaccination Hubs designed to vaccinate thousands of residents a day with drive thru vaccinations. Rotarians will also be helping to set-up and tear down the drive thru in the various locations of our county. Still other Rotarians, Rotarators and Interactors will organize call centers to assist residents in preregistration for the appointments to the drive thru vaccination sites.
