As recently announced, we have launched a new joint service project with the Lowcountry and Beaufort Rotary Clubs, called Outfitting Lowcountry’s Youth, a school uniform project.
This project is being headed-up by our very own Terri Ely, of Spectrum GAC, who will coordinate all uniform orders as they come from the various schools from the northern Beaufort clusters. Each week she will place a mass uniform order from a couple pre- arranged discounted suppliers. When the uniforms come in, we will need several Rotary volunteers to pick up the uniforms from Spectrum and deliver them to the various schools in our area.
Attached to this email is a list of all the schools participating in this service project. We need YOU to volunteer to an assigned school(s) to be called upon for the deliveries. The more volunteers the better, as we hope to have enough volunteers to rotate through the list so that no one is over burdened.
This project was jointly funded with $3,500 form the three Rotary Clubs. This means on average each school has about $270 to spend on new uniforms this school year. We should be able to help hundreds of our most needed families, and give their children the greatest chance to succeed in their early education.
If you can volunteer for this year long service project, please email me with your schools of choice, best contact number, and email address.
Yours in Rotary,
