Rotary International partners with Collateral Repair Project for our Back to School Campaign, which includes After-School Club, Teen Group, and Parent’s Awareness initiatives. With the help of Rotary International, Collateral Repair Project was able to provide 1,181 children with three months worth of school supplies, backpacks, and uniforms in 2017.
