According to Wikipedia, Rotary International is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services and help build goodwill and peace in the world. With the motto ‘Service above Self’, the New City Rotary chapter recently donated Shelter Boxes to Syria, the Philippines and India. These boxes are packed with items that provide disaster victims with emergency shelter and living supplies.
