City of Lakes Rotary is committed to being part of the solution for kids in Minneapolis who need help to succeed. We are doing this in 2 major ways over the next 3 years:
*  Collecting & distribute 10,000 books to kids in Minneapolis who need them
*  Providing 10,000 meals to alleviate food scarcity. When you’re hungry, it’s hard to concentrate on reading.
We are identifying the need and working with several partners to enrich the lives of kids in Minneapolis through books. Some of our projects include: stocking Little Free Libraries in distressed areas, so kids can have access to a larger variety of books they can keep in their homes, partnering with Hennepin County Corrections to supply dictionaries for adult learners and with Minneapolis Public Schools to helps adults learn English so they can be better parents. We are exploring partnerships with Minneapolis preschools and elementary schools to encourage reading in youngsters by giving them a book that’s their very own.
We are working to reduce hunger for kids in Minneapolis by working with CES (Community Emergency Services) and the Sheridan Story.
We’d welcome your support of book or financial donations so that we can have a bigger impact in helping kids in our community grow up reading, with books in their home. For more information or to help, contact
