The Omni Club and ELC aspire to collect 150 new or gently used books for three and four year olds (hard covers preferred). All guests will have the chance to register that day to become a Literacy Buddy too. There will also be an opportunity to donate new and unwrapped gifts for Toys for Tots.
The event will include “Story time with Santa”, cookies and milk and a designated area for photos with Santa. Omni Club members and non-members are welcome. For more information, please contact Robin Gretz at (239) 210-6886 or robin.gretz@
ABOUT THE LITERACY BUDDIES PROGRAM
In existence for four years, the purpose of Literacy Buddies is to help young, pre-elementary school aged children develop and excel in literacy. The purpose is to teach children about correspondence, communication and instill appreciation of reading. Literacy Buddies has direct, measurable results. In nearly every case the child’s communication skills are positively impacted and visible via letters and verbal communication changes. For some children, this provides the only opportunity to have books of their own at home. For more information regarding Literacy Buddies please visit http://www.elcofswfl.org/
