First Wire Transfer for Microcredit Goes to the Dominican Republic 
 
After many months of fundraising, organizing and structuring, Rotary District 6040’s microcredit project in the Dominican Republic is about to launch.
 
The first wire transfer of $25,000 (U.S. dollars) left the United States in early June 2016. Randy Steinman, Kansas City Plaza Rotarian and District 6040 Microcredit Chair, returns to the Dominican Republic in late June to observe the implementation of the project. 
 
These funds were wired to District 6040’s Rotary partner for this project, The Rotary Club of Santo Domingo Herrera. The Herrera club will in turn make a presentation to the project’s cooperating partner, Instituto Dominicano de Desarrollo Integral Inc., or IDDI.
 
IDDI estimates these first funds will help 70-80 families in the Herrera & Alcarrizos neighborhood lift themselves out of poverty. The overall commitment to this project is $125,000 to be distributed over 5 years. This program was made possible as a result of a contributions of District 6040, District 4060 (D.R.), Rotary Clubs in Missouri and a Global Grant from the Rotary Foundation.

Outstanding Collection of Shoes for Orphan Souls 
 
With Big Muddy churning by just a couple of hundred feet away, cheering Rotarians chanting off the numbers by the thousands, the annual Shoes for Orphan Souls campaign wrapped up April 30 at the District Assembly in St. Joseph with another outstanding year – 16,777 pairs of new shoes, 2,103 pairs of socks, 158 pairs of shoelaces, and $10,717 in cash donations.
 
 
 
 
 
 
We Know Shoes! 
 
Can't resist one more shout out to all the club members for the impressive showing in this year's annual Shoes for Orphan Souls drive. 
 
Our club donated 1,219 pairs of shoes and had an impressive showing at the collection, held in connection with the District Assembly  at the Remington Nature Center in St. Joseph.
 
Here you can see fellow Plaza Rotarians on the truck with shoes -- from left, Dave Bahner, Beth Bahner, Frances Reddis, Larry Lunsford and Cassy Venters. 
 
Congratulations!
