The Historic Rotary Club of Charleston participated in its annual Operation Warm project which is funded by the RCCF. It provides children at their partner school, James Simons Elementary, with winter coats. The RCCF was also able to fund hats, gloves and socks last year, but due to the increase in the number of students needing coats we were unable to fund those items this year. However, a big thank you to Operation Warm Chair, Cheryl Kaynard, who was able to secure a donation from the Ackerman Foundation to purchase the additional items needed!
Over 200 coats were distributed to children just in time for the holidays and cold weather!
Special thanks to the Rotarians and their friends and family members for assisting in the distribution!
