2015 Toys for Tots

Thanks to generous donations from the community, the East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club donated 110 bicycles to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. WCBD Meteorologist Rob Fowler and members of the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program were on hand at the Rotary meeting December 8th at the Mt. Pleasant Waterfront Park to accept the bikes. The Marine Corps says that they collect about 40,000 toys to give to approximately 10,000 children at Christmas time.  A matching grant of $2600 from the District Simplified Grant, plus an additional $1800 from the Club’s 501c3 and member donations, yielded over 110 bikes for a total value of almost $7000.

Oktoberfest Logo 2013The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club (ECBR) will host its annual charity run on September 26th beginning at Laurel Hill County Park.  The Oktoberfest 5K Run-Walk is a Saturday run with an authentic German Band and a Bavarian Beer Garden to welcome participants to the finish line. This event supports the club’s fundraising efforts for the following charities: ECBR will team up with the local Marine Reserves Unit again this year in their Annual ECBR Toys for Tots Bike Drive.  In the past these bikes were purchased through ECBR member donations only. A small club of 50, ECBR has donated over 2000 bikes since this initiative began. On top of what the club raises this year, proceeds from the Oktoberfest 5K Run-Walk will be used to support this cause to raise even more money to buy bikes for children here in the Lowcountry.
