East Cooper Rotary Club Donates 110 Bikes to Toys for Tots


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.
