Rotary Donates Books, Supports Literacy

Thank you to the Manitowoc Sunrise Rotary Club for its "Read to Succeed" partnership with the Manitowoc Public School District!

Rotarians recently donated $1,400 to the district to purchase “Hickory, Dickory, Dock” nursery rhyme books for all 430 children in MPSD's 4K program to keep and take home.

Literacy is a major emphasis for the Sunrise Rotary. They believe helping children to develop competency in this area is vitally important to their future educational success. This is the 5th year of the club’s “Read to Succeed” partnership with the public school system. Thank you to the Sunrise Rotary for your continuous support and donation!!
