District Grant Application Submitted
$5,000 District Grant application with a focus on Maternal and Child Health was submitted on July 14th. 
The Plaza Rotary Club, in coordination with the beneficiary Hope House, will purchase and install four sets of clothes washers and dryers in the existing residential shelter in Independence, Missouri. Plaza Rotarians will repaint the entire laundry facility and install needed and appropriate shelving.  The washers and dryers purchased in this project will replace older, worn-out equipment that requires frequent and costly repairs.  The objective is to provide necessary and dependable laundry equipment and facilities for residents (women and children) who cannot afford to use off-campus laundry facilities, often do not have adequate transportation to access off-campus laundries, and, more importantly, whose safety may be imperiled if they are seen in the community by their spouses or partners or their friends and associates.  If the grant is approved, the Club is committed to completing the project by March 1, 2018.
