The pandemic has taken an economic toll on many families in the Kern River Valley.  Recognizing the stress this puts on families and students, the Rotary Club of Kern River Valley resolved to pitch in and help with some financial support offered through the high school.  Earlier this month, Paul Cromwell, President of the Rotary Club, met with John Meyers, principal of the Kern Valley High School, to hand over $1,200 in Target gift cards.  These gift cards will be distributed to financially strapped high school students and their families for purchase of basic necessities.  The high school counselors identify families in need and facilitate the distribution.  This is the second tranche of Target gift cards the Rotary Club has passed to the high school for distribution since the start of the pandemic.  The Rotary Club is extremely pleased with this opportunity to partner with the high school in service to the Kern River Valley community.
