Tackle Poverty-Help a Child Read

Getting a child off to a solid start with reading is one of the best weapons we have to attack poverty. The Laurel Civic Association holds a summer reading program and is in need of volunteers. For just a small amount of your time, you can help local children not lose reading progress during the summer.
As a volunteer, you may come to all or just some of six consecutive Wednesdays, June 14 thru July 19, arriving at 2:45 pm and staying until 5:00 pm or so. You’ll read, listen to children read, and help them with words when they get stuck.
We’ll meet at the Laurel Civic Center (509 Collins Road, Laurel*, FL 34275) for a tour on Wednesday, May 24th from 10-11am. If you can’t attend the tour but would like to volunteer or have questions, please let DRE Jaye Williams know so she can keep you in the loop.
*If you have a GPS, use it. It will take you to the Center whether you put in “Laurel, FL” or “Nokomis, FL”
