The Fort Dodge Rotary Club participated in an application to Rotary International for a $194,306 grant to support dental and general health initiatives for underserved children and adults in Eastern Iowa.  The Fort Dodge club placed approximately $5,000 to the pool of funding which will return to Fort Dodge Community Health Center in an approximate amount of $20,000.  The funds will be used to purchase mobile equipment carts for eye care and dental health to assist in the Center's services.  Other funds came from Brazil (District 4590), India (District s 3011 and 3132), 9 Rotary Clubs in Iowa and Minnesota (Cedar Rapids, Marion-East, Dubuque, Cedar Falls, Fort Dodge, Cedar Valley, Waterloo, Bellevue, and Edina MN., and District 5970 of Iowa and 5950 in Minnesota.  This grant was an unprecedented act of collaboration that hopefully can be used again in the future.
