Rotary Club of Rutland supports literacy programs at Rutland elementary schools

The Rotary Club of Rutland’s yearly Santa Raffle raised $500 for the benefit of school literacy programs. Club members Will Gormly and Chuck Rose delivered $250 checks to both Northwest Elementary School and Northeast Elementary School in Rutland recently.

January is Rotary Awareness Month and basic education and literacy is one of Rotary’s seven areas of focus. Rotarians understand the critical importance of literacy. The ability to read and write is an essential skill necessary for our ability to participate and contribute to society. Literacy empowers people, expands our opportunity to lead a productive and meaningful life. Rotarians all around the world continue to address these challenges and open doors for children to be confident readers and learners.

The Rotary Club of Rutland is one of over 60 local clubs in District 7870 in Vermont and New Hampshire.
