The Gift of Literacy – Part 2

In mid-December, we hosted our 2nd Annual Holiday Literacy Village for families involved in Read Muskegon programs, enrolled in local Head Starts or participating in other parent support programs. Parents and children made their way through nine stations, each focused on fun ways to build early literacy skills. Before heading home, each child was able to select several books to keep and each parent was provided with a literacy resource bag. Thank you to all of those who helped make this event possible including our many individual donors. And a big thanks to the Whitehall High School NHS students who got up bright and early on a Saturday morning to volunteer! The gift of literacy is one that will last a lifetime.

It’s Pumpkin Time at EXIT!

The October Family Literacy Dinner at EXIT was all about Halloween!  The EXIT participants were able to decorate pumpkins with their families which was the highlight of the night.  Special thanks to our friends at the Harbor Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Muskegon for providing a delicious dinner and to Todd Greiner Farms of Hart for donating the beautiful pumpkins.
