Literacy

Understanding "Many hands make light work" the Literary Committee partners with the United Way and Akron Public Schools though the year.

  • March Dr. Seuss' Birthday
  • July Backpack Adventure at Akron Zoo
  • October-April Tutoring with an APS partner school
  • November United Way Read to Me Day

The literacy committee has been busy in the 2019-2020 year. Prior to the start of the school year members hosted a booth at the Akron Public Schools and Akron Zee Backpack Adventure. Members passed out school supplies and donated 500 glue sticks.

The Tutoring Program in partnership with Crouse CLC continues with volunteers visiting once a week to provide one-on-one assistance with 2nd grade students.

The National Day of Service Halloween event was a huge success. A coloring station and books were handed out to all children.

The first week of November was highlighted by the United Way Read to Me Day. Members were guest readers in primary school classrooms and shared their favorite children's books with the students.
