The Rotary Club of Okatie was pleased to have Betsy Doughtie, Executive Director of The Deep Well Project, as our guest speaker for our April 19th meeting. Betsy Doughtie has lived on Hilton Head for nearly 46 years.  She has been active in many volunteer activities with the schools, her church and other organizations.  For the past 19 years she has been active with the Deep Well Project. She explained the operation of the Deep Well Project as a tax exempt, nonprofit organization composed primarily of volunteers who help people in emergency situations.  Among the areas they serve are providing emergency home repairs, building wheel chair ramps, and providing furniture, clothing, food, rent, utilities, prescriptions or other forms of payments . on behalf of qualified, needy clients.  Betsy emphasized that the Deep Well Project helps people in emergency situations by giving them  an immediate hand so they can continue to help themselves. The Deep Well Project works closely with other nonprofits and is part of The United Way.
