Summary: We will provide backpacks and school supplies to local schools to be distributed to underprivleged students.
We will identify the current needs of underprivileged children for school supplies and purchase items for the schools to distribute as needed. Two years ago we supplied the school classroom list. for two burley area elementary schools. Last year the schools needed a smaller assortment of supplies so we bought mostly backpacks, headphones and dry erase markers.
This project is "Signed". This means that the signatures from the club leadership have been collected. This project is now being reviewed by the district leadership for approval. Once a decision is made, the status of the project will be changed to "Approved".
We will not be able to consider your grant application for 2021-22. The deadline for Rotary Foundation grant applications to District 5400 was June 1st. Some years, depending on money available to us, we are able to provide some funding for late applications, but in this case the application was fully signed and turned in after we had applied for the block grant from TRF on July 1st. Put it in your calendar to start the application process in May of 2022 for next year. We don't want Burley Rotary Club to miss out.
