    Orange Rotarians mark eleven years of giving to Project Hope School
    For eleven years the Orange Rotary Club has taken youngsters from the Project Hope School on an annual mini-shopping spree as part of their holiday. This year 35 Rotarians and their family and friends took 57 children from the Project Hope School in Orange on a shopping trip to Target to buy gifts for the children’s family members.

    Rotarians helped the children select the gifts and accompanied them back to the school, where they helped wrap the gifts and enjoyed a pizza lunch. For some of the children, this was the only opportunity for them to personally give to their family members.

    Project Hope School is the only transitional school in Orange County created to meet the educational needs of homeless and at risk students in kindergarten through eighth grade. A public school, it is a part of the Alternate Education Division of the Orange County Department of Education.
