This District wide program would focus on a very emotional and difficult time when
children are moving into and around the Foster Care system. Rotary would provide backpacks
and duffle bags to the Office of Children's Services for distribution to the hundreds of
Alaskan Children experiencing these traumatic displacements each year. The bags and comfort items inside would hopefully bring a little joy, self-worth and comfort.
Addendum to Project Description (added after the project was signed)
Due to the cancellation of another district grant for 2017-2018, the district grants committee voted to authorize $2,000 for Project P-1590, Rotary Cares.
