Del Mar Rotarians deliver books to local students in literacy effort

The Rotary Club of Del Mar is making an extra effort to promote literacy at deserving schools this year. With the assistance of charitable donations and matching grant funding from Rotary District 5340 (San Diego and Imperial Counties), three Title 1 schools in Escondido, Julian and Carlsbad, as well as two students in Roatán, Honduras will receive educational assistance.

One of the grants recently was awarded to the Julian Elementary School. Del Mar Rotarian Peggy Martin, said, “I’m so happy to help the children of this school because a majority of the students have no one in their home to help them with their studies.”

The Rotary Club of Del Mar visited Julian Elementary School for an honorary check presentation and book distribution on Nov. 18. The students received “learning book kits” comprised of a series of soft-cover books, each focused on a letter of the alphabet.  The kits came complete with a tutorial CD for the students to take home and share with their families.
