ROCKY RIVER, Ohio — Members of the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River joined Rotarians across the country Aug. 26 by participating in an international service project known as “Children of the Dump.”
Shoe boxes for the Children of the Dump in Chinandega, Nicaragua, were filled with personal care items, clothing, school supplies and age-appropriate games or toys.
Club members also donated money, shopped and purchased needed supplies for the children, as well as preparing and filling the boxes for shipment. Club member Vicki Foster led this year’s initiative. She was supported by 22 club members.
Fifteen shoes boxes were filled for young boys and 20 for young girls. They contained items like shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, hairbrush, comb, underwear, flip flops, one outfit of top and pants for girls or an outfit of shirt and pants or shorts for boys, a baseball cap, a doll and toys
