For the third year, we will be holding a District Conference Literacy Project by collecting new books suitable for grades Pre K – 6th grade.
 
This year’s book donations will benefit two schools in the Richland One district whose students, families and faculty were impacted greatly by the Fall flood. 98% of the kids at Gadsden Elementary School in Gadsden, SC and 79% of the students at Horrell Hill Elementary in Hopkins, SC qualify for free or reduced lunch. Both schools are located in lower Richland County, an area that has a much higher level of poverty than the state average. Many students were already in great need and then the flood came and took the little they had. Your donations will go to kids and schools that have been through so much.
 
All Rotarians who attend conference are asked to bring a book with them to donate. Not attending conference? Your club may be holding a club-wide book collection drive so you can still participate. No book drive in your club? Just purchase a book and give it to one of your club members who is attending conference.
 
Thank you so much for helping to spread the gift of literacy in District 7770. #Rotary #Rotary7770

On August 26, Rotary District Governor Rod Funderburk addressed the Rotary Club of Daniel Island. Consistent with Rotary’s global theme to be a gift to the world, DG Rod emphasized three key themes — “Cure” – finalize the eradication of polio and tackle Alzheimers; “Compassion” – give back to the community in ways that have sustainable impact; “Communication” – tell the great story of Rotary clearly, positively, and frequently. #Rotary7770 #RotaryDJVisit2015
