Greenwood Rotary Club Raising Funds for Disaster Victims

The earthquakes that shook Nepal earlier this year have left many people homeless and communities in shambles. And the Rotary Club of Greenwood is trying to help.

According to the Daily Journal, in a show of solidarity, members are sleeping in tents outside Lotus Garden restaurant until they’ve raised $50,000 in aid.
