Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Daniel delivered 235 brand new dictionaries today to 3 Berkeley County elementary schools: Cainhoy Elementary School, Phillip Simmons Elementary School and Daniel Island Elementary School – one for every 3rd grader!

The students were thrilled to receive their new reference books and immediately began looking up words, including the longest word in the English language: pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, a word that refers to a lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silica particles, specifically from a volcano.

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

Representatives from both organizations, (Sara Cooper, Beth Bush and Bill Thielfoldt), visited the school on March 7 to deliver 30 copies of the book, entitled “Behind God’s Back: Gullah Memories of Cainhoy, Wando, Huger, Daniel Island and Thomas Island.” The students were each given a personal copy of the book, signed by the author, Herb Frazier. ‪#‎Charleston‬ ‪#‎Rotary7770‬
