Here's a great way to get rid of your "STUFF" AND  help raise funds for one of Rotary's remarkable international projects:  The Children of the Dump.  It's called the District 5890 "Clean Out Your Closets" Service Project and all you need to do is ask your club members, friends and family to pack up items they don't need, pick a collection point, then drop-off the items or we'll pick everything up, and we'll ship everything to to the project.  CLICK HERE to watch a 2-minute video.

Under the leadership of Rotary District 5890 since 1997, the "Children of the Dump" Project has grown from a school with 90 students near the garbage dump in Chinandega, Nicaragua, to now over 1,600 students.  The students are fed, educated, receive health care and now their future is much brighter.   The majority of these "School of the Dump" students have become the first-generation of their family to attend and graduate high school.  We've had 25-30 graduate from college, and there are currently 25 attending college. 
Thanks to Rotary, the projects in Chinandega include primary schools, a high school, the Betania Trade School, clinics, the San Martin Hospital, Santa Lucia School for the Blind, Refugio Belen Maternity Shelter, plus several villages where families live, plus a Resale Shop.
