Walterboro Rotary Donates Christmas Cheer

 

The Walterboro Rotary Club was excited to donate Christmas toys to 28 children at Forest Hills Elementary for the fifth year in a row. On Wednesday, December 14, 2016, Walterboro Rotary, in partnership with the schools Angel Tree program, helped make sure dozens of needy children's Christmas were a bit brighter.

This year's Angel Tree had over 70 names, and thanks to the hard work of the people at Forest Hill and Cindy Riley, these kids will get a merry Christmas. We couldn't help our community without the support of our great community and members. Thanks to Walterboro Rotary successful Ireland Creek Bridge Run and a matching grant from Rotary International it was possible to spread Christmas cheer.

Walterboro Rotary was founded shortly after WWII by a group of community minded prominent business people. The local Walterboro Rotary supports many local organizations throughout Colleton County, including the Angel Tree, scholarships to deserving students at USC Salkehatchie, and donations to the Veterans Victory House, Colleton County Memorial Library, Colleton County Animal Shelter, and Boys and Girls State just to name a few. Walterboro Rotary also donates to RotaryInternational programs to end Polio and provide clean water to those in need.

The Rotary motto is 'Service Above Self'. Walterboro Rotary is proud to help our community in any way our group can. The smiles of children, the grateful thank you of college students and the knowledge that our support can make our community better drive us to continue to do more year over year. We heard from them - my dream did come true, and - this is the best day of my life. The children made all our efforts more than worthwhile.
