Columbia County Community Connections Afternoon Shift 3
Saturday, Nov 4, 2017
3:30pm – 5:30pm
At Columbia County Community Connections, our mission is to improve the well-being and health conditions of families through a collaborative system of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual supports.
We will be hosting a Books4Kids drive to collect books for babies through third grade. One of the primary indicators for academic success is reading on grade level by third grade. The way to accomplish that is to ensure that children are read to from birth and ongoing throughout their development. This builds vocabulary and language skills. Many low-income families do not have books in the home and are not aware that reading is critical to their child’s success. We are supporting the state’s Get Georgia Reading campaign through this endeavor. The books collected will be distributed to families with young children with an emphasis on reaching those most in need.
