North Fulton Rotary Club Helps Roswell Students with Supplies

The club raised almost $2,000 to provide supplies to 150 kids at four schools.

When local school children need help with school supplies, the Rotary Club of North Fulton responds with enthusiasm.

The club kicked off its new Rotary year with the tradition of a service project that is a great support to the local North Fulton community, according to Todd Bellocchio, public relations chair for the club. Children benefiting attend North Fulton public schools that have a diversified population, with about 65 percent being of international backgrounds.

  • 75 bags with supplies were delivered to in Roswell on Aug. 11. Principal Lynn Johnson received the gift on behalf of the school and its students.
