Helping meet the unmet needs of the students of the Orange County School District.
The Orange County School District has over 3,000 students that are eligible for free and reduced-price school meals. The school social workers report that unmet needs impede the learning of many students. For over 30 years The Rotary Club of Hillsborough has held a Pancake Sale as our primary fund raiser. Our event in 2019 raised over $8000 that we divided and donated in equal portions to each of the 13 schools in the Orange County School District. We made these donations in the belief that each school knew best how to support the unmet needs of their students. We were able to give a check for $650 to a representative from each Orange County Public School. While the sale of Pancake Meals provided some revenue towards our project, it was our corporate sponsors who contributed the major funding for this project. Since our last Pancake Sale our club's non-profit corporation, The Hillsborough Rotary Foundation, Inc., has been granted 501c3 status by the IRS. We hope that you will support our 2021 fundraiser, knowing that all proceeds will be distributed equally to the school social worker at each of the 13 Orange County schools. Together we can make a difference for our children!
