Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Preston, Idaho

Total Budget: $4,096

Areas of Focus: Basic education and literacy, Community economic development

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: School Supplies for Preston Elementary School District


With almost 17% of children living below the poverty line in Franklin County, Idaho our Rotary Club is looking for proactive measures to help kids and families with an economic need. With improving education situations as an important step to improving long-term economic development, our project is focusing on a small but needed area of providing school supplies. We are initially working to provide backpacks and supplies for incoming 5th-grade students of Oakwood Elementary school. Working with the Preston Education Foundation who helped us identify this need, we expect to provide for every in-need child.

In the past, the Preston Education Foundation had an annual project to provide supplies and clothes for school children in need. However, they are no longer able to continue with this project. We believe this brings a more urgent need for our project to succeed.

The Rotary Club members will be raising funds, purchasing the supplies, preparing, and delivering the backpacks to the teachers for distribution to children. Distribution is expected in August 2020.
