School Supplies to Fill Backpacks for Children

The Area 4 Rotary Clubs are partnering to fill backpacks with school supplies for 1st - 5th graders.  Together we filled at least 30 backpacks!  The non-profit Community Beyond Violence (CBV formerly Domestic Violence Coalition) is organizing this activity for children of the CBV clients.

Our Club is filling packs for students with requested school supplies.  Items the school kids need include:

  • #2 pencils, pens, crayons, erasers
  • notebooks and other paper, lined/ruled paper
  • rulers, paper folders, glue sticks
  • blunt tip scissors, box for pencils and pens
  • 2-pocket folders, coloring books

Lindy Beatie, our Area Assistant Governor and President of Penn Valley Rotary, picked up our donations with a back pack on July 28.  For more details, contact co-president Carolyn: sends e-mail)
