A $1,000 total donation from the Rotary Club of Peachtree City will be used to enhance learning opportunities for hundreds of students across the county.

The Fayette County Public School System’s Friends Mentoring and After School programs each received a $500 check as part of the Rotary Club’s initiative to support education and learning.

“We ask educators who know the needs and emerging trends, and if we can help in bringing resources for future learning, we are honored to do so,” says Karen Stephens, community service director for the club.

The donation will help fund the development of a math guidebook for mentors to get ideas for study materials and activities, and the purchase of training curriculum to assist After School Program sites in retaining or working toward receiving national accreditation.

This marks the third consecutive year that both programs have received donations from the Rotary Club of Peachtree City.
