The Rotaract Club of Benque Viejo has held its 4th Annual Fill a Backpack Project, which was just completed last week.  We were told by Vice President and Community Service Director Ricky Cunil that the Rotaract Club reached this year’s goal of 50 backpacks and surpassed it by 35 more backpacks; distributing a total of 85 backpacks. The backpacks were distributed in Benque Viejo Town, San Jose Succotz Village, Calla Creek Village and Arenal Village, where needy children benefit from this helpful project every year before school opens.

Cunil also expressed that this backpack distribution wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Business community and the people of Belize. The Rotaract Club wants to extend their gratitude and appreciation to A & R, Atlantic Bank, Rotary Club of San Ignacio, The Office Gurus, JBD & Cayo Pharmaceuticals LTD., Trek Stop and Tropical Wings.  He also thanked Deysi Cooch, Mr. David Ruiz, Ms. Maria Cocom, Geovanni Salazar, Mr. Joe Johnson, Ms. Cynthia Reece, Mellissa Krebs, Emil Mendez, Debbie Alfaro and Ms. Mirvella Pinelo in their support for the backpacks.

Rotaract would also like to give a special thank you to members who donated their time to pack and distribute the school bags. Also thanks to the San Ignacio Falcon’s Basketball Team members for joining  in the distribution of the backpacks.
