Christmas baskets: Each winter, Rotary Identifies those less fortunate families who may need a hand at Christmas time. Rotary's baskets have all the ingredients for a home-cooked  meal and other staples.

The Blue Jean Project: Rotary works with the school system to identify deserving students who need assistance with basic clothing needs and provides blue jeans to those students.

Learning to read well at an early age is the key to successful education of our students in all career paths. Rotary also began a Character initiative with all our fourth-grade students.
