Rotary Readers

Rotary Readers, this program was started in 2000 by Will Bortz.  The joy of giving a book to a child who does not have access to books as most of us do.   In its 16 years, we have distributed 36000 books to 41 schools in the West San Gabriel Valley. Jean Brodhead is now spearheading the Rotary Readers program, whereby she solicits members to find out if there is a school district in need of books and we determine a budget to get the books and deliver them to the school. We try to donate to 3-4 schools per year. Learn more about this program by contacting Jean Brodhead at jeanbrodhead@me.com
