Target Corporation was recently acknowledged by the Community Learning Center for sponsoring our Free Books for Kids events during the 2012-2013 school year. Target gave the CLC a grant for $2,000 that allowed us to promote this event to six local elementary schools and to provide snacks and beverages for our children and families.
These events give us an opportunity to distribute hundreds of gently-used books to local children in order to encourage them to read. The children are also able to do arts and crafts, spend time on the playground and enjoy a book reading or storytelling by a local children’s book author.
Thank you to Target Corporation for your generosity and for helping to increase literacy among our local kids!
