The Rotaract club of Coastal Carolina University and the Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise went shopping at Wal-mart for more than $1300 in clothing to restock “Clothes Closets ” located in local middle schools. The clothing supply in each school is inventoried at mid year and then restocked for winter weather item distribution. The Rotaractors selected clothing items which are issued to needy students by school administrators. The project, called “Warm Bodies” , is funded by the Rotary Club and the Rotary Foundation. More than $6000 will be spent this year for new shoes and clothing to needy students, and over 600personal dictionaries will be gifted to Horry County third graders.The school support programs (clothing, shoes, school supplies and dictionaries, Smart Snacks for weekend consumption ) have been in place for nearly ten years and are widely applauded by classroom teachers as a means of removing obstacles to student learning and assuring their quality of life. The Carolina Forest club meets each Wednesday at 7:00 am at Beef OBrady’s located in the Kroger – Carolina Forest Mall. Visitors are always welcome to learn how to serve the needs of our community while enjoying a free breakfast.
