Please support students’ project

On Thursday, Jan. 10, students from Willett, North Davis and Pioneer elementary schools and Emerson/Da Vinci Junior High School stopped by the Davis Board of Education meeting to present their community project “Chapters Change Children.”

This project, a partnership with the Sunset Rotary Club of Davis and the Rotary Club of Kisumu, Kenya, aims to collect 4,000 books and $4,000 to benefit the children of Lower Nyakach. Our students will collect the books and raise the dollars, Sunset Rotary will manage funds and ship the books, and the Kisumu Rotary Club will oversee distribution of the books to schools in Kenya. Raman and Harry Kandola of KTL Transportation in West Sacramento have donated warehouse space to store the books until they are ready to ship.

The Davis school district will donate surplus textbooks to the project, but the greater community also has an opportunity to contribute. Our students greatly appreciate your donations of gently used or new children’s fiction and nonfiction books. These books may be delivered to the offices of Willett, North Davis, Pioneer or Emerson through the end of March. Your added contribution of a dollar a book will help offset shipping costs.

Monetary contributions should be made payable to Davis Sunset Rotary with “Chapters Change Children” in the note line. Checks may be delivered to the school sites or mailed to Davis Sunset Rotary, P.O. Box 2112, Davis, CA 95617.

We are proud of our students’ initiative to support learning throughout the world. We encourage your support of this inspiring humanitarian endeavor.
