Rotary Club Giving Back

From feeding kids to distributing books for summer reading, the Trophy Club Rotary Club offers year-round support.

The Trophy Club Rotary Club recently volunteered for Community Storehouse’s Summer Reading Camp. Travis Inge, a volunteer with TCRC, shared about the organization’s work in the community.

Tell us about your recent service project.

Fifteen local Rotarians served by cooking hot dog lunches, reading to camp kids, facilitating crafts and playing games to celebrate the last day of their Summer Reading Camp. The Trophy Club Rotary Club also brought enough books for each camper to take a book home.

Who coordinated the event? 

For many years, Community Storehouse, based in Keller, has hosted a great Summer Reading Camp with hands-on activities designed to provide students with problem-solving opportunities, experiential and engaging interactions, social engagement and academic skill review. They provide various services and resources to support and encourage students and their families.

What is Community Storehouse’s (CS) mission?

They're doing everything possible to keep children in school and help them succeed year-round.
