Helping Children… One Book at a TimePosted by Lynne Talks Local
I am so excited to announce the Collette Foundation will be working with two great organizations which both operate with the mission to put free books into the hands of children in-need, “making a difference in the life of a child one book at a time.”
- Books Are Wings allows Blackstone Valley, RI children to receive free books through events at the Central Falls Library and in the Central Falls and Pawtucket schools. Book party events include story time, crafts and refreshments. Kids get to walk around, scope out the selection, and select their own book to take home!
- Reach Out and Read partners with doctors’ offices. This pediatric literacy program distributes free books to children during their visits and advises parents about the importance of reading aloud.
The Collette Foundation strongly believes in the importance of literacy for children, and actively works to engage them in the benefits and joy of reading. Click here to read about a Collette Foundation ambassador reading to local children recently.
