National Hurricane Disaster Relief
This past September, Hurricane Dorian threatened the Southeastern United States and our Order reacted by mobilizing its chapters to stand-ready in the event of impact. Our densely populated areas were spared but the Bahamas were not so fortunate. Hurricane Dorian slowly moved across the island over a span of 24 hours and left it devastated. As a part of District 2 and therefore part of our domain, the Sons of Pericles has committed to provide long-term relief to the Bahamas by fundraising to rebuild homes and re-establish the communities.
In this effort, we will be partnering with Team Rubicon, a nonprofit organization providing services in disaster relief to affected areas. From its website, "Team Rubicon is an international non-profit disaster response organization that unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams, free of charge, to communities affected by disasters. Team Rubicon currently maintains a roster of 65,000+ volunteers able to deploy throughout the United States and world." We encourage all our members and all those who are able to support this effort to donate and participate in our fundraising initiative as we attempt to aid our Brothers in their time of need.
