Myrtle Beach, SC – Carolina Forest Rotary Club teamed up with Coastal Carolina University’s Rotaract Club today to purchase six carts full of much need school supplies for students at Carolina Forest and Waccamaw Elementary Schools. Both clubs are champions of children and education. The event is called P-Cubed (paper, pens, pencils, note pads) and the purpose is to provide school supplies for economically disadvantaged children identified by school administrators. Volunteers from each club met at 6:30 am before work at Walmart on Hwy 501 in Conway to purchase supplies that are difficult for some families to afford. Volunteers then delivered the supplies to the schools.

Pictured are the busy Chicora Rotarians working at the Street Reach facility that serves and shelters the homeless in the Myrtle Beach area.  This is a quarterly project for the Chicora Rotary Club this Rotary year. We are proud to be able to help our less fortunate neighbors who are experiencing difficult times. Huge Thanks to Frank Clark for organizing the Street Reach service project. Frank spent the afternoon running around in the pouring rain to gather and deliver supplies. Thanks also to Alice Yerkes and Brightwater Retirement Community for donating potato salad and baked beans. Last, but certainly not least, thanks to those Rotarians who were not deterred by the rain and came out to prep, cook, and serve. Eight members fed about 130 hungry people who were super grateful. Well done team Chicora!

The Chicora Rotary again had the pleasure of inviting Macie McMillan and  her younger sister to tell us  about their pet project that has turn into a large scale operation. It all started several years ago when Macie. who is a 7th grader started the project, by asking  her friends and family to bring backpacks instead of presents to her birthday party.  The next Summer she began activity asking everyone she saw at church and in her neighborhood to sponsor a backpack.  This little entrepreneur grew this great little idea into a major funding of assistance for less fortunate classmates   To date she and her program have donated 1138 backpacks to schools in Horry County   Every year she comes to Chicora Roary for assistance,  last year we funded enough to purchase 30 backpacks and this year we gave her funds enough to buy  24 backpacks.  These funds only represent those funds collected at the meeting. she gave her address to the entire club so they could send in additional funds,if they desired.   The Chicora wishes Macie well on the wonderful civic project.
