Responding to disaster comes naturally for New York Rotarian

Responding to disaster comes naturally for New York Rotarian

Jim Kushner knows the recipe for disaster relief is simply to show up. 

As Jim Kushner sees it, there’s no choice, not for him. Others may dither when a tsunami hits Japan, an earthquake levels parts of Haiti, or a hurricane like Irene or Sandy demolishes a vast swath of homes and businesses along the U.S. northeast coast. For Kushner, past president of the Rotary Club of Inwood, Manhattan, in the borough’s northernmost neighborhood, natural disasters present no options: They demand and deserve immediate and effective action. How could anyone not drop everything and respond? he wonders.
