Rotary Club spreads joy in Beetham for Christmas

The Rotary Club of Central Port of Spain (RCCPOS) Service Projects Committee has been very active in their community this year. 

Supporting schools like the All in One Child Development Centre (AIO) and the Each One Teach One School (EOTO), in Beetham Gardens, they’ve been able to help children living in single parent households with low or no income. 

For the Christmas season, RCCPOS collaborated with Movie Towne. They hosted 177 children and their guardians for an outing. The children enjoyed treats and a film, and the little ones even received goody bags from Santa.   

Their Service Projects Committee was able to raise funds to purchase and distribute over 120 Christmas toys and gifts to the children and teachers of AIO and EOTO. 

Christmas hampers were distributed to those families in the Beetham Community whose children receive educational sponsorship through the Club’s Adopt A Child programme which has been helping children to obtain a Secondary School education. 

The club assisted the schools with some infrastructural improvements. They provided furniture, fittings, vision testing, monthly food hampers, stationery and school supplies and educational summer outings.
