Hi all,
Check out all these immediate opportunities below to get in on the literacy action! Each project is estimated to take 2-4 hours total and can be done on your own schedule. Great feel-good opportunity to make a positive difference for kids. Lots of context & background information available from Jean Johnson and/or Hugh Pruitt.
  1. Reach Out & Read MN - Coordinate with matching grant person to make a donation on behalf of COL, coordinate a book sorting in late February.  This one is HOT and we’d like to get someone to adopt it as soon as possible so that we can get our $2K matched right away.
  2. Way to Grow  - Coordinate book purchase with agency & bookstore.  Contact our ongoing partner to determine their needs, provide the funding we’ve already budgeted. Explore opportunities for club engagement.
  3. Reading Partners - Coordinate with our bookstore partner to purchase diverse books identified by the organization & ensure they’re delivered.  Possibly arrange participation in year-end graduation. We have an ongoing relationship with the organization & bookstore. 
  4. Joyce Preschool - Get a list of desired titles from the Preschool, order & deliver books to the school for the kids.  Receive lots of hugs. 
  5. New Horizon - Coordinate a family book giveaway.  Contact the organization to learn when their upcoming Family Night will be & what kind of books they’d like. Use/modify existing book list, order books, pick up from bookstore & encourage club members to attend Family Night to help families pick out books. 
Contact Hugh or Jean today to get involved!
