LINCOLNTON, N.C. - Three Lincoln County Rotary clubs collaborate to provide personal protective supplies and school supplies for 360 needy Lincoln County students.
The three club presidents have been meeting to brainstorm how the clubs can work together to provide support for our community. Thomas Eatmon, President of Denver-Lake Norman and President Cliff Brumfield of Lincolnton club are excited about this partnership and working together to provide this community impact.
Dr. Rhonda Hager who serves as President of Lincolnton-Sunrise states, “As a retired educator I have heart for children and wanted our clubs to collaborate providing something helpful to our students who have needs.”
In Lincoln County approximately 45 % of students qualify for free and reduced lunch. These families are struggling with current economic times to provide shelter, pay for utilities, and buy food, as well as purchase clothes and other necessities for their children. These bags will provide students a nylon drawstring bags with masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, anti-bacteria wipes, tissues, pencils, pens, colored pencils, and paper to start school.
Rotary members from Denver-Lake Norman, Lincolnton, Lincolnton-Sunrise Clubs gathered at LCS Central Services on Monday, August 3rd, where they placed Rotary stickers on products, wrote notes to students, and prepared materials to be added to each bag.
