East Haven Rotary Club
EAST HAVEN, CT —The East Haven Rotary Club recently received a grant from Rotary International that targeted the “social and emotional well-being of young children.”
With those funds, the East Haven Rotary purchased sensory toys and assembled over 200 ‘Sensory Boxes’ which were distributed to all East Haven public elementary schools.
The sensory boxes, filled with educational therapy toys to relieve stress and anxiety for children, were given to the special education departments in each of the elementary schools.
Some of the items included mesh and marble fidget toys, mini squeeze balls, fidget spinners, porcupine balls, color brick stress toys, water beads and monkee noodles.
外媒報導，在美國康乃狄克州的East Haven Rotary Club，從RI獲得一筆預算，他們採購了一批感官玩具，並自行分裝成200多盒「感官玩具盒」，捐贈給當地的公立小學。
這真是一則很溫馨感人的扶輪小故事，社區服務不在金額大小，而在那一份關懷的心！要讓社區感受到扶輪力量，不需要動輒動用大筆捐款，最重要的是要了解並符合社區的需求，要站在對方需求角度來思考社區服務，而不是站在捐贈者角度思考（要摒除業績或績效導向思考）。康乃狄克州的East Haven Rotary Club的這個社區服務就是一個很好的典範！
