5 Clubs in Monroe County Bring a Global Grant to Our Backyard!
Congratulations, Stroudsburg Rotary (who spearheaded this grant), Blakeslee Rotary, Mt. Pocono Rotary, Pocono Mountains Rotary and West End Rotary whom all joined together to make this Global Grant happen, along with our International partnering sponsor the Canadian Rotary chapter. With the special circumstances approved at the end of the 2019-2020 year from Rotary International, a Global Grant was approved and funded for work right here in Northeast P.A. Rotarian Dave Super, stated "Traditionally, our monies raised for international projects helps in countries around the world. Given the significant impact the pandemic has had in Monroe County, we opted to fund a program within our county." 
Pocono Services for Families and Children Head Start Program was the recipient of a $33,750 Rotary International Global Grant to fund virtual classrooms for their Pre-K children impacted by Covid-19.  The Grant will purchase laptops for online learning that are loaded with specially designed software that focuses on skill necessary for kindergarten success. A big thank you to all of the clubs involved.
