ROP Program

 
 
 
Kathy Meyers spoke today about the ROP program through the Boys and Girls Club.
She gave us an overview of the program which provides a safe place for kids after school. They are working on a summer program, and could use help with funding. They currently are offering an 11 hour program every day.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Marcy Vega picked up where Kathy left off on the ROP program

 
  • They started the program with a 5 year grant – which was spent. Fortunately, parents at the time were able to pick up the financial slack.
  • They started with 2 members, and are now up to 50 with 4 staff people.
  • They offer an academic literacy program.
  • The Summer program is much needed.
  • Everything now is donor time and donor money supported.
 
Thanks to the Rotary for the previous support, they are targeting $14,000 for the summer program, and have $5,000 so far. Any help we can offer is appreciated!
