Nonprofit agency marks an important milestone with a
donation of books to the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County.
Tarpon Springs, Fla. – The Rotary Club of Tarpon Springs is excited to celebrate its 95 years of club service to the community by donating books to the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County (ELC). Members through the book drive donated more than 100 books. Books from the donation drive will support families with children 0-5.
“Development of a child’s mind begins early, and reading is the foundation of that learning. Early literacy helps children develop the tools to become successful readers and lifelong learners,” said Lindsay Carson, chief executive officer of ELC Pinellas.
For 95 years, the Rotary Club of Tarpon Springs’s dedicated volunteers has used their passion, energy, and intelligence to support their community’s needs, taking action on many sustainable projects from literacy to health.
“We are committed to our shared responsibility to take action on our community’s most persistent issues. Our goal is always to work hard to better the lives of the people around us,” said Robin Wikle, president of the Rotary Club of Tarpon Springs.
