Thank you to everyone who help raise additional funds for the vision screening device for Growing Futures Early Education Center!
Total Cost: $6,470
Funds Raised: $5,312
Our club funds and the District Grant match raised $4,230, we raised an additional $1,080! This includes personal contributions from club members as well as outside donations from other friends and neighbors as a result of us promoting our project to our wider networks and spreading the word about our club and what Rotary can accomplish.
 
Growing Futures Early Education Center, serves more than 200 children and their families with Early Head Start and Head Start programs in Johnson County. The services they offer include comprehensive support services including health and nutrition services, onsite play therapy, parent education, mental health, medical and dental health, family support and engagement opportunities.
 
Onsite Vision Screenings 
The Federal Government requires Growing Futures to perform a mandatory vision screening for each child served. Normally, an onsite screening day required an outside provider to come to the center. If a family missed a school on a screening day, they would have to work to schedule an outside appointment. Having a screening machine onsite means greater flexibility and the possibility of screening during home visits. Anything to lessen the impacts of hassle in families' lives can translate to better growing and learning.

GEEKS FOR KIDS 2021 - HELP KIDS WITH MOVEMENT LIMITATIONS
Over 500,000 American kids under the age of five have mobility problems. They often can’t run and play with other kids, and this limits their development. Geeks for Kids changes that! Join us in building hot rods that get these kids moving - and make them the coolest kids on the block!

Put your skills to good use: build hot rods for kids with movement disabilities. There are lots of ways to plug in! Whatever your skills – from engineering, programming, robotics, physical and occupational therapy, sewing, design, project management or just willing a hand – we need your help!
 
 
A new feature is available - ZOOM video recordings.
 
As of January 20 we are recording our meetings. All of our speakers have been very interesting - we just learned how to record, access, and make the recordings available AR smksrotary.org. The password to each is listed. We don't control it. Copy and paste is the easiest way to enter it! 
 
The link is in the upper left corner of the webpage, just under meeting responsibilities. Have you checked lately?
 
Enjoy!
