ROTARIANS FUND NEW PRINTERS, SUPPLIES FOR LINCOLN COMMUNITY CENTER
January 28, 2015
One important aspect of helping Troy school students be successful is to enable them to complete their homework and turn in assignments on time. In today’s computer-based learning environment, that means having access to PCs and printers. When Troy Rotary learned that the students who rely on Lincoln Community Center for access to such technology needed new printers, the club went into action. Through their Troy Rotary Foundation, they purchased two (2) Brother laser printers, print cartridges and reams of paper that LCC will make available to the students in the center’s classroom. Those supplies were delivered to LCC in January and put right into use.
“We serve dozens of school children each day throughout the academic year,” said Executive Director and Troy Rotarian, Shane Carter. “Having the equipment available and in good working order is vital to keeping the students focused on completing their school assignments rather than on how long it will take to print off their papers,” Carter added.
This is another example of how the partnership between LCC and Troy Rotary is helping folks in Miami County. “This is one of the reasons why Rotarians fund the Troy Rotary Foundation each year,” explained City Director and Rotarian, Patrick Titterington. “We want to respond quickly to community needs, whether it’s buying new printers for LCC or funding scholarships to high school seniors who plan to pursue secondary education, it’s money well spent,” said Titterington.
Troy Rotarians contribute to the Troy Rotary Foundation to support several community projects annually. In 2013-14, more than $11,000 in scholarships and community aid was distributed from the fund, including providing support for Lincoln Community Center. Scholarship information for graduating seniors can be found on The Troy Foundation Web site at www.thetroyfoundation.org or through their school’s guidance counselors.
