Cienega High School Teacher Alexis Rhyner needed a little help building a library for her Adaptive English class. The Rincon Rotary happily chipped in. The Rincon Rotary Club enjoys a strong relationship with Bookman's, one of Tucson best local bookstores. Together they donated $780 worth of gift cards and discounts so that Alexis can instill a love of reading in her students. The flexibility of gift cards empowers the teacher to purchase books she knows will get her kids plugged in.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary LOCAL program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary LOCAL can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
