The Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Sunrise donated 30 backpacks filled with school supplies to students last week.

“We hope to ensure that the last thing students have to worry about is whether they have notebooks or a pencil, allowing them to focus on their education,” said President Pat Steward.

The members of Rotary Sunrise packed the bags, 15 each for primary and high schools.

“This is the second year we were able to provide the bags to the Department of Children and Family Services,” said Jenna Mungall, co-director of community service. “We hope to continue supporting the families of Cayman each year.”

Rotary Sunrise focusses on local projects in Literacy, Youth and Community Service. The club meets every Wednesday at George Town Yacht Club at 7am.
