Trident United Way’s Day of Caring provides an opportunity for corporate volunteer teams to partner with agencies and schools to increase community engagement. On November 14, 2014, members of the Historic Rotary Club of Charleston participated in two Day of Caring Projects at their partner school, James Simons Elementary coordinated through Charleston Promise Neighborhood.

The first project was Honoring Veterans, which was perfectly timed with Veteran’s Day being earlier that week. Some of the Rotary Club’s own veterans shared their stories about life in the military with 4th, 5th, and 6th graders.

Another set of Rotarians helped with the second project, teaching Healthy Habits to 4, 5, and 6 year olds. The main focus was on proper hand washing. Each student left with a neat hand magnet reminding them when to wash their hands.
