Literacy: A Gift for Life
Wednesday, February 4, 2009 • Posted February 4, 2009

Alpha Beta Psi’s service project for 2009 is “Literacy: A Gift for Life.” The goal of this project is to present every baby born in Mason County in 2009 with a literacy bag. We hope to make this an annual project!

Each child will be presented with:

· A canvas book bag for library outings,

· Literature for their parents from the National Institute for Literacy,

· Read to Your Bunny by Rosemary Wells—a poem on the importance of reading to your child 20 minutes each day,

· 2 board books, and

· A set of colorful link toys!

Bags with literature in Spanish are also available.

If you know of anyone in Mason County having a baby in 2009 please contact Kathy Loeffler (265-2483), Richelle Joy (347-5836), or any ABP member!
