This week Mary Ann Rousseau shared with us the work of the Foxborough Regional Charter School Holocaust Stamps Project.  The goal of the project is to collect 11,000,000 cancelled postage stamps to symbolically honor every victim of the Holocaust.  The wide range of themes depicted- people, world history, place, flora - leads to discussions about what makes our diverse world so special.  Students have used the stamps to make 12 collages to date, and 18 more are in process.  For more information about the project, visit http://www.foxboroughrcs.org/students-families/frcs-holocaust-stamp-project/.
 
Please take a moment to save your cancelled stamps and send them to:                         
     Foxborough Regional Charter School
     Holocaust Stamps Projects
     131 Central Street
     Foxborough, MA  02035

And then shoot Mary Ann an email at:  rookin22@aol.com and let her know how many stamps you sent.  Mary Ann will keep track and report back how many stamps the club has sent!  What an easy way to support education and the arts, as well as discuss important moments in history and diversity!
 
 

 
We know summer has just started, but it is time for us to start thinking about collecting school supplies for next year.  BayCoast Bank is helping us by offering collection boxes at their greater Fall River locations.  So next time you are at the store, pick up some extra glue or pens and drop them off at a BayCoast Bank.  You can also give them to any Fall River Rotarian.  If you would like to make a cash donation, please contact the Project Chair Lubelia Raposo at lraposo@ser-jobs.com.  The Rotary Club has already purchased 120 backpacks.  All donations will be given to local social service agencies on August 4th so they they have enough time to distribute them to those children that need them most before the start of the September school year.

Grant survey shows solid support for new model
More than 6,000 Rotary members in 154 countries reported on their experiences with the new grant model as part of an evaluation during the 2015-16 Rotary year. The results will help us improve the grant process and learn what impact the Foundation's global grants have on our areas of focus. Among the key findings: 90 percent of respondents support the grant model; 86 percent see it as an improvement over the former model. Grant activity and the average grant award continue to increase each year. Rotary members want more resources to help them apply for grants and design sustainable projects...
