Total Budget: $2,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Backpacks for children in families of limited means.


Summer Harvest [a 501(C)3 organization) exists for the sole purpose of providing food and other resources to children and families enrolled in the Free/Reduced Lunch Program when school is in session. Working with the administration of local school districts, Summer Harvest has identified the poorest-of-poorest who struggle to make ends meet and need assistance for the most basic of needs.

Grant Funding: $2,000 for the purchase of approximately 250 school backpacks which will contain generic school supplies provided by Summer Harvest.

Club Participation: Club members will assist with the filling each backpack with the school supplies and distributing them to the students. Each backpack will contain a card indicating that it was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.

Impact: 250 children will begin the school year with a backpack and school supplies thus lightening the burden on the family to provide these items and free up limited resources for other needs.
