Rotary Club members along with SHPD Officers have gathered in the SHPD EOC to put together school supplies for local elementary students.

Volunteers from the Rotary Club of Signal Hill and local residents are packing over 2100 back to school supply bags at the Signal Hill Police Department. The program started 13 years ago with donations from Robert Long and Nancy Long, long time Signal Hill residents and past Rotary Presidents. This year, the Rotary Club of Signal Hill partnered with the Long Fund to donate over $20,000 in school supplies with donations from Rotary District 5320, the Signal Hill Police Officers Association, Prophet Bolden, a child actor on ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat”, Costco, and Aleshire and Wynder, the City Attorney.

The packs of school supplies include: binders, composition books, ruled paper, graph paper, scissors, rulers, pencil sharpeners, colored pencils/crayons, folders, glue sticks, and erasers. Costco donated over 400 backpacks.

President Robert Mendoza adopted the Back to School Supply project as his Club’s “community Service Project”, and secured a Grant from Rotary District 5320. Club members are looking forward to donating school supplies in coming years. Rotary’s Motto is “service before self”. The Rotary Club meets every Thursday at Curley’s on the corner of Willow and Cherry, in Signal Hill, at 7:30 a.m.
