The Care Circle is going to help the Easton Cops ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program by collecting gently used and new books for the Reading Room located in the lower level of the Easton Area Community Center (formerly St. Anthony’s Recreation Center.) Cops ‘n’ Kids is an international program now in existence throughout theU.S.,South Africa,Venezuela, and thePhilippines. It’sMission: “Connect kids and community through literacy.”
There will be a designated basked at the back of the church where books may be left. It will be an ongoing project as the children are allowed to keep a book as they read. These are children who often have no books or people to read with them. Books vary from baby read-aloud books to young adults.
There are other opportunities to help with this program. Please feel free to see Jean de Streel, or call her at: 610-253-7630, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers are needed to spend time at the Reading Room with the children, sort, label, and prepare books for distribution, coordinate various activities sponsored by the Program, sponsor a specific activity (i.e. “Author Day” with related craft), or provide donations such as monetary, space, materials, and books.
