Members contributed weekly to a "charity box," the funds from which go directly to local charities.
The Middle School CPR Program is in place at New Century Middle School.
"We are working on a grant to extend the program to Southern Middle School," says a spokesman.
This program is geared toward seventh-graders in conjunction with the American Heart Association. A video is supplied to science teachers to give the students hands on instruction on CPR.
Along with the other Rotary Clubs in the area, the Southern Pines Rotary Club members are getting ready to distribute dictionaries to third-graders.
"This highly successful program is in its seventh year," says the spokesman. "Since year two, we have reached every third-grader in Moore County. This year, we hope to reach 1,200 students."
This joint effort has raised approximately $11,000 for the 2009-10 school year.
