Shop and Help End Polio Too
Benton Harbor Sunrise Rotary is well on its way to selling gently used treasures on eBay.  Some people have been calling it a garage sale because it replaced our actual garage sale. It is much more like an estate sale. We have over 40 items (with more coming all the time!) ranging in price from $8.99 to $850.00...including precious and costume jewelry, vintage dolls, kitchen items, a sleigh,  and too many unique items to list them all here.  In order to access the eBay list easily, use either the hot link or scan the QR code below.
Benton Harbor Education Foundation is On its Way
Jerry Price is the co-chair of the one-year-old Benton Harbor Education Foundation. Much progress has been made along the way.  The organization has established its 501c(3) public charity status.  Community sponsors and advocates have supplied a small war chest to get the organization working on its mission, which is:  to raise, steward and distribute resources to enrich the education of students in the Benton Harbor Area Schools and also the larger community.  K through 12 education is our focus.
  Mr. Price noted that area charter schools are excluded.  Activity will take place through four processes: Large grants for 3-5 year efforts, Small Grants, Staff Development Grants and Student Grants. Thus far they have allocated $85,000, $20,000, $20,000 and $10,000, repecitively in the four areas.  All activities of the organization are conducted at their website, (the .org URL was already taken).  Go there to learn more, donate or volunteer.
