Mace Bravin wanted the basics for the 6th grade classrooms at Valencia Middle School; pencils, paper, and pencil sharpeners. The Rincon Rotary partnered with local office supply store, Gibsons Office Supply to get them what they needed.
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.
To find out more about Rotary LOCAL and how it may be able to help you, go to rotarylocal.org. Primary support for Rotary LOCAL comes from the Rincon Rotary's annual fundraiser, The Tucson Taste of Chocolate.
