Club Donates Supplies to Back to School Drive
With funds donated by the Rotary Club of East Windsor, as well as individual members, the club purchased and donated more than $400.00 worth of school supplies to the East Windsor Human Services Department. Every year the department provides back packs filled with notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners and erasers, pocket folders and lots more to needy children in East Windsor. One of our club's annual projects, our members appreciate being able to help the students begin the new year well equipped and ready to focus on learning.
