Children in Rockwall have been able to stay warm thanks to the generous donations from the Rockwall Breakfast Rotary Club and the Rockwall Noon Rotary Club.

In keeping with Rotary's motto, "Service Above Self", on Tuesday, November 29th, over 200 coats were delivered to all elementary schools of Rockwall Independent School District.

Coats For Kids, now in its seventh year, is one of Rockwall Breakfast Rotary Club's rewarding annual programs serving the Rockwall community. The annual coat drive initially started in conjunction with Dobbs Elementary.

Nothing is more rewarding than knowing that you have given a gift. It is even more rewarding when it's something they really need. “On behalf of Rockwall ISD, we greatly appreciate the support to our students given by your organizations. You made lots of children and parents smile today!” said Dr. Debbie Smothermon, Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services.

KC Club Leaders graciously accepted coat donations on behalf of their campus and were appreciative of the gifts to classmates. Kindness and Compassion Club Leaders are part of the Rachel's Challenge Program.
