PROJECT GRANT-Literacy Bags for Children in Foster Care and Easter Seasls Twin Rivers Reading Council project for 2023-2024 is to show meaningful support for approximately 100 Craven & Pamlico County children in foster care as well as approximately 30 children with the Easter Seals program by presenting them with literacy focused bags. Contents of the bags includes age appropriate books, journals and school supplies. Contributions of new and gently used books, composition books, pencils, crayons, erasers, and other school supplies will come from the 200 plus council members and community organizations. Members will share in the “hands on” assembling of the foster bags at the council’s final meeting of the year, April 25, 2024 (usually attended by 50 or more members). It is the goal of Twin Rivers Reading Council to help comfort and inspire children facing challenges beyond their control. By giving them these literacy tools toward becoming a successful reader and /or writer, Twin Rivers Reading Council is showing them that we and the community care greatly about them and their future.
