Recent Foundation Grant Project Highlights
Improvements to West Pasco Little League Park, 2016
Rotary clubs pitched in to improve the West Pasco Little League facility to ensure plenty of youngsters are able to enjoy sports. Rotary Club of Trinity cleaned up the field with a $5500 grant from the District. The club matched District funds with $2750 of its own. The Rotary Club of Seven Springs also contributed financially and with member sweat equity at the field.
Improvements included new bleachers, backstops, and painting of the buildings and dugouts. The “makeover” was completed with the help of 40 Rotarians and family members from the two clubs.
Dorothy Menzies Child Care Center, 2015
The Rotary Clubs of Dunedin, Dunedin North, E-club, Clearwater East, Palm Harbor, Seminole Lakes, and Tarpon Springs have partnered with the Belize City Rotary Clubs to complete several important projects at Dorothy Menzies Child Care Center (orphanage) in Belize City. Rotarians made several trips to determine the most immediate needs. Schools uniforms, commercial washers and dryers, lice kits, medical supplies, and school supplies were all needed.
In addition, the primary school that the kids from DMCCC attend needed a freezer and refrigerator so they could serve nutritional lunches.
As a result of contributions and coordination with the Belize Rotary Clubs, the children now have healthy lunches, and are able to go to school regularly because lice have been eliminated. They also have a private place (backpacks) to put not only school supplies but personal items.
The project has successfully given each and every child a sense of dignity and respect.
