While the COVID-19 pandemic has limited the ways in which the Rotarians of District 6580 can meet and serve in person, it certainly has not limited our spirit of 'Service Above Self'.  Our clubs have stepped up throughout the District during the months following the onset of the pandemic.  Here are just a few of the examples!


The Salem club handed out free hand sanitizer to the community.  In addition, the $3,000 event proceeds from the club's 2020 Daddy Daughter Dance were gifted to local organizations to aid in their work during the pandemic.  This included the Washington County Foodbank, St. Vincent Salem Hospital, Baptist Floyd Foundation and Schneck Foundation.


The Rotary Club of New Albany and the Rotary Club’s District 6580 approved $6,000 in grant funding to support the Floyd Memorial Foundation’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund. The Fund was established to purchase essential personal protective equipment (PPE) for Baptist Health Floyd staff and patients following the onset of the novel coronavirus in southern Indiana.


The Vincennes Rotary Club donated $10,000 to the United Way of Knox County COVID-19 Relief Fund.



Columbus Rotarians assembled face masks for local non-profit organizations.










Brazil Rotarians spent time making masks for their surrounding communities.
