Columbia Center Rotary wanted to help children in Belize learn math. When a few of its members learned the Kennewick School District had set aside some of its older textbooks, they knew what to do next.
Rotary members reached out to the district about acquiring some of the textbooks for grades K-5 as a donation that the club could send to a school in Belize.
Past Club President Peter Kalunian sorted through and packaged a portion of the books and our warehouse staff helped prepare them for shipment.
Rotary members and volunteers will visit Belize this winter to provide health care and construction help as well as train teachers to use the textbooks.
