ROTARY EAST DONATES SUPPLIES TO KIDS AT 4 SCHOOLS

Aug. 28, 2001 – For the third year, Rotary East members delivered goodie bags filled with supplies such as reading books, copy books, crayons and pencils to first graders at four elementary schools on St. Thomas.
The goodie bags were received by students Tuesday at Dober Elementary School, Jane E. Tuitt Elementary School, Evelyn Marcelli Elementary School and Peace Corps Elementary School.
The bags are funded by donations from businesses in the community, friends of Rotary East, the Human Services Department and Rotary Club of St. Thomas East. Next year, the goal is to supply the bags to all the schools on St. Thomas and St. John, according to Rotary East member Corinne Van Rensselaer.
