Current President Melanie and Past President Debbie from Danville Sycamore Rotary Club are taking a trip to Monterrey Mexico to visit some of the Matching Grant projects the club helped fund. They will be visiting Ludoteca de Cumbres, an after school program in a distressed neighborhood in Santa Catarina. Danville and Lafayette Rotary Clubs also contributed, as well as a match from Rotary International, in providing $30,000 in computers, desks, and play areas. Debbie and Melanie plan to bring items that the children can use, such as school supplies (notebooks, pens, pencils, colored books, scissors), as well as toiletry items (Toothpaste, toothbrushes, hair brushes, soap, and lotion) and small stuffed animals. Anyone who is willing to donate these items please contact Melanie firstname.lastname@example.org by February 20th, 2011
