Did you know that November is National Family Literacy Month? Well, there is a great way for you to get involved and help promote this worthy cause.
Read to Grow, a nonprofit organization based in Branford, is committed to advancing child literacy and educating families on the critically important role it plays in early child development. To that end, Read to Grow has donated over 2.2 million books in the last two decades.
Established in 2019, Lori’s Truth is a local nonprofit organization that honors the life of an amazing and inspirational educator. Lori Galvin served in public education for 18 years as an elementary school teacher and reading consultant. Lori’s Truth strives to live out the values embodied by Lori and carry on in her spirit through engagement in our local community.
As such, the group has partnered with Read to Grow to support their efforts in the area of child literacy.
How can you help? By participating in an upcoming community book drive. Lori’s Truth will be collecting books on Saturday, Oct. 24, on the green in front of First Congregational Church, 111 Church Dr., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. All donations will go directly to the Read to Grow programs. Organizers are looking for new or gently-used books for a variety of age groups, from newborns through high school.
