Community Action Needs Your Help Putting Books in Homes of Lincoln Children
Books: they have the power to insight our imaginations and transport us into extraordinary worlds. Books not only improve our quality of life, they are also important tools young children need to learn…to be ready to achieve success in kindergarten.
Unfortunately, not all children have access to books while they are at home. In the spirit of Reading Month, which is during the month of March, Community Action (www.communityactionatwork.org) is seeking support from people like you to build at-home libraries for the babies, toddlers, and preschoolers enrolled in its Early Head Start and Head Start programs. Chapters Book Store, based in Seward, NE, has generously contributed half the cost of this effort.
“We are proud to be able to contribute to this project, which will provide all children with access to books,” said Carla Ketner, owner of Chapters Book Store. “We hope others will join us in bringing this project to fruition.”
Here’s How You Can Help:
- Sponsor a child – $25 provides a sack of 5 books for one child.
- Sponsor a classroom – $200 provides books for all children in an infant/toddler classroom and $425 provides books for all children in a preschool classroom.
Community Action’s Early Head Start and Head Start programs ensure our community’s youngest and most vulnerable children are able to enter kindergarten ready to succeed.
