C&S Sponsorship Has Grown to 16 Book Buddies
Thirteen C&S team members now support the Literacy Buddy Project of the Early Learning Coalition of Sarasota County and are providing books to 16 book buddies. Below are pictures of some of the C&S team getting the books ready to be sent off to their Literacy Buddies. The purpose of the Literacy Buddy Project is to teach children about correspondence, communication, and promote early literacy while providing children with quality books that they take home. The project also supports parents as partners in their children’s learning. For many of the children, a Literacy Buddy provides the only opportunity for them to have books of their own at home.
Anyone, any age, anywhere can become a Literacy Buddy and it doesn’t take much time, but makes a large impact in the life of a child. Exchanges occur three times per year.
