Rotary Club of Boise Southwest
Whittier Elementary School has long been a favorite project of the Rotary Club of Boise Southwest.  Projects have been made a little more difficult with COVID, but where there’s a will, there’s a way!  This year, the club sponsored the 6th grade Fiesta. The students were treated to tye-dye shirt making, a taco truck luncheon and purchased a yearbook for every single 6th grader!  Whittier projects throughout the year include swim lessons, pumpkin patch visits, a holiday luncheon and more. 
We are thrilled that in addition to Whittier School, this year we were able to help Whitney Elementary School as well.  We prepared backpacks with school supplies for every 6th grader to start off 7th great on a great foot.  Many of the students are unable to afford uniforms, which are required in 7th grade.  The club provided every incoming 7th grade student with a voucher which can be redeemed for school uniforms.  The smiles on their faces said it all!
