HENRY COUNTY SUPPORTS FODAC









The Rotary Club of Henry County really made a huge impact for the community by collecting well over $100,000 in retail value of home medical equipment Saturday on their first equipment drive!! We will have the final tabulation shortly but two very expensive pediatric powerchairs were the most valuable and will be provided to some very happy kids!!



2018 Parent Expo to be held this Saturday July 21st from 9-12

The Problem

Communities in Schools ("CIS") is the nation's largest dropout prevention organization. In Henry County, the local chapter of CIS has established various programs to identify and assist at-risk students in middle and high schools, and connect those students with various resources with the goal of helping kids stay in school and graduate. CIS receives only 12% of its funding from state resources. The remainder is acquired through fund raising efforts and private donations. One of the programs that CIS spearheads each year is a Parent Expo at the end of July, where Henry County students and parents can connect with community resources and receive free student backpacks and school supplies to start the new school year. Many of these students would otherwise start the new school year with little or no basic school supplies. In 2017, CIS gave away approximately 1,500 backpacks as well as a variety of school supplies appropriate for all grade levels. The average cost incurred by CIS for the Parent Expo in 2017, after private donations, was approximately $7,000. In 2018, CIS anticipates needing a minimum of 1500-1700 backpacks to insure that every student who attends the Parent Expo leaves with a backpack and school supplies sufficient to start the new school year.

Impact

The Henry County Rotary Club will supply 500 backpacks for Henry County public school students attending the 2018 Parent Expo. Doing so will help to ensure that every student has the necessary school supplies to start the new school year. Providing students with backpacks/school supplies, who otherwise may not have any, gives these students a better chance to start the school year successful and will help keep at-risk students in school.

Henry County Rotarian volunteer hours are anticipated at 100-125 hours over the 3 day schedule. The Rotary Club also plans to staff a Rotary booth at the Parent Expo to promote Rotary's goal in supporting education as well as the Rotary Club as a local civic resource.




Henry County Rotarians make an impact on hurricane victims in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean

This year we met with the Governors from the Rotary Districts in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean during our Zone Institute in Orlando, Florida, in October 2017.They told us that their needs included projects to repair homes, schools, and water supplies for their families affected by hurricanes. To fulfill that request we have applied donations from individual Rotarians and Rotary Clubs of District 6900 to those projects. There have been individual donations from Rotarians to the District Charitable Fund for this effort and from Rotary Clubs. The R otary Clubs of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, North Atlanta, North Fulton, Muscogee, and Henry County have all contributed to our Charitable Fund.

These donations have been designated for Aqua Box – water filters for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, and for home roofing projects requests by the Rotary Club of Dominica. Your donations gone to the Rotary Action Group – Disaster Network of Assistance (DNA – RAG) for the roofing projects in Dominica, and Aqua Box in England (run by Rotarians) to provide family and community water filters.
