May 18, 2015 As National Foster Care Month is being celebrated throughout the nation, local organizations such as the Rotary Club of Daytona Beach is giving gifts to children who are in the foster care system. On Monday, May 11, 2015, the Rotary Club of Daytona Beach selected four local community organizations to receive club-based grants for the development of Daytona Beach’s youth. The $1,000 grant will go towards purchasing gift cards and school supplies for the upcoming school year, as a part of Community Partnership for Children’s annual School Supply Drive. “Hundreds of Daytona Beach’s youth do not have an opportunity to start school with new school supplies and learning essentials; the rotary’s grant will send a lot more children to school with joy this fall” says Director of Support Services, Danielle Antione. The school supply drive starts at the end of July and receives donations up until the last week of August.
The Rotary Club of Daytona Beach presented the $1,000 check to Community Partnership for Children during a special ceremony that took place during their regularly scheduled chapter meetings. Each year, the local club gives thousands of dollars to local organizations as a part of their mission to render substantial service to the community.
