The Pembroke Rotary Club [PRC] donated 50 backpacks filled with school supplies to the Bermuda Foster Parents’ Association.

The children are at all school levels – Primary, Middle and Secondary school – and the backpacks contain supplies including binders, notebook paper, rulers, pens and pencils, a water bottle, granola bars, dental care products as well as other age appropriate products.
