When the school bell at G. T. Woods Elementary School in South Kenner rang for the first time this year, students were greeted with supplies provided by the Kenner Rotary Club.  Kenner Rotary presented a $500 check and over $1000 of needed classroom materials to the Woods faculty.  Supplies donated were scissors, paper, Kleenex, crayons, pocket folders, notebooks, paper towels, pens, pencils, baby wipes, pencil pouches, white board markers and school glue.  Each student was provided enough materials to start off the year.  Teachers were very excited and pleased since over 98% of their students are on the free lunch program and unable to purchase necessary items.
Members of the John Curtis Interact Club assisted with the delivery and unloading of the school supplies.  Interact is a service organization for high school students that is supported and mentored by a Rotary Club.
