BOOKS FOR ROTARY!!
On May 17th the Minden Rotary Club plans to again provide a drop off location for books. The trailer will be in the Westminster Presbyterian Church parking lot from 9:00-noon. Please, only drop off books this year. In 2013, we collected over 3,000 pounds of reading materials to help with world literacy.
Monetary donations to help with the large shipping costs are always accepted.
All donated books will be donated to the “Rotary Books for the World” project. Books are collected all across the US and transported to a shipping facility in Houston, Texas. There they are loaded into containers and sent to various locations all over the world.
This project originated in 2001 when a handful of Texas Rotary clubs shipped three containers to countries in southern Africa, each holding 40,000 books, overseas. By 2011, 26 containers were shipped. Last year, that figure soared to 40.
The cost to send these books to where they can be utilized can be overwhelming. Approximately $2,500 buys a container and $4,100 covers the ocean freight. Minden Rotarians will have a donation jar at the drop off site or you can mail a check to MINDEN ROTARY CLUB, 441 W LEXINGTON AVE, MINDEN NE 68959.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our recent pancake feed & bake sale. We raised just under $1,000 to pay for our 2013 dictionaries!! The dictionaries have been delivered, and the kids (and teachers) are very appreciative.
We could not have done this alone.
