My project will encompass the Rotary Cares for Kids theme. I would like to do the following:
Purchase items to be used for Birthday Bags for kids to deliver to the food bank. the following items will be needed: (cost approximate)
50 Birthday themed Gift Bags. $ 150.00
50 Cake Mixes 150.00
50 Frosting 150. 00
50 paper plates. 150.00
50 napkins 150.00

50 reusable water bottle (water sanitation) 400.00
50 party favors. 50.00

Rotarians will gather together to fill the bags and deliver to the food bank. I will then make a pitch to local business to adopt this program by filling 25 bags a month. My hope is to get at least 12 business on board so this can be done throughout the year.
The remainder will be used to fill 37 Rotary Cares for kids backpacks/duffle bags with the following items to be distributed to OCS or Law Enforcement to be given to children when they are removed from their homes. there will be a bag stuffing party with Rotarians.
37 backpacks $500.00
37 toothbrushes/toothpaste $200..00
37 kids tearless shampoo. 100.00
37 small stuffed animals. 200.00
37 books 200.00
37 pairs of unisex socks 300.00
total cost would be $1500.00
any excess funds will be used fill additional birthday bags.
total for both projects $3000.00.
