HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. - May 8, 2023 - PRLog -- Born To Read, Inc. is excited to announce it has received a grant from the First Presbyterian Church of Hilton Head Island. These funds will be used to be purchase books to be given at hospital visits, free parent workshops and other community events. In addition it will help us meet our goal of adding one additional book to each resource bag.

Born to Read's Executive Director Janie Ephland schedules volunteers six days a week to go to birthing centers at our area Hospitals, and present a resource bag to all the new moms. The Resource Bag has information on the importance of reading and talking to a new baby to help develop their vocabulary and language skills so they will be prepared to enter school. Each Resource Bag has a board book for the baby, a rhyming book with reading tips/strategies, a list of community pediatricians, a four-page reference for community resources for children and families, a Born To Read bib to remind families to talk to their children while feeding them, and a Born To Read tee shirt to remind families to talk to their children while dressing them and doing daily activities.

"On behalf of the Board of Directors of Born To Read, Inc. I would like to say, 'thank you' to First Presbyterian Church, HHI for this grant to use to support The Born To Read Mission."  stated Janie Ephland, Executive Director, Born to Read, Inc.
