Guy Selinske (Prior Lake Rotary) presents district grant check to John Wollersheim (Rosemount Rotary)

Rosemount Rotary Club has received a grant from its local Rotary district to provide hygiene products for low income students at Rosemount High School.


Rosemount Rotary Club applied for and received a district grant to start a Kody's Closet in Rosemount High School. The closet is a storage unit that is stocked with hundreds of basic hygiene products.  The purpose of the closet is to make hygiene products available to students who do not have access to them because of challenging personal circumstances. Students often find themselves in difficult financial and personal situations through no fault of their own.  By providing these products in a dignified, private manner, a Kody's Closet allows students to improve self-esteem so they can focus on being successful students.

This grant is just one way that Rosemount Rotary Club partners with the Rosemount community to create educational opportunities in local schools.  The club also funds scholarships, recognizes student achievement and facilitates a mentorship program each year.  Contact us to learn more about the club and how you can become a part of our exciting volunteer efforts in the Rosemount community!
