Rotary clubs to collect supplies for Maui children and teachers

Starting Sunday, the Rotary clubs on Maui will spend two weekends at the entrances to a number of stores to collect school supplies for the children of Maui. As patrons enter, the Rotarians will hand them a school supply list of items needed by keiki and teachers; the patrons will be encouraged to purchase any of these needed items or to make a donation for such purchases. Once collected, the Rotary Club members will divide and deliver the collected supplies and funds to community programs that help children in need and to individual schools on Maui.

This is the eighth consecutive year that a school supplies drive has been sponsored by Maui Rotary clubs. Listed are the dates and locations of the drives; most will operate between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
