History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Gillette, Wyoming 82716

Total Budget: $1,500

Area of Focus: Maternal and child health

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: Provide Winter boots for students in need in Campbell County School District.

Gillette Energy Rotary members would like to continue our "Boots for Kids" project, so are applying for a District 5440 Governor's Grant. The club works with the administrative assistant to the Associate Superintendent for Instruction to reach out to school counselors concerning the number of students in need of winter boots, at their schools, mainly elementary schools. In 2019-20, the number of pairs of boots given to students was two hundred and twenty-nine. The number was a little low, and we would hope to reach more students this year. Because of the pandemic, the thought is that there may be more students in need. The Gillette Energy Rotary Club members will actually pick up the boots from Wyoming Work Warehouse and deliver them to the various schools. There are thirteen elementary schools, two junior high schools and three high schools in the district. The boots will go to any student in need at any of these schools.
