Local Literacy

A to Z Literacy Movement is partnering this summer with a local nonprofit, Garden Quarter Neighborhood Resource Center. A to Z volunteers will head to McHenry, IL for Summer Story Boost, reading with small groups of children who are attending the resource center. Part of Garden Quarter’s mission is to encourage education and multicultural relationships which ties beautifully to the work of A to Z. Summer Story Boost will get books into at-risk children’s hands, help grow their love of reading, and increase their expressive and receptive language. We are proud to be working with this nonprofit and feel honored to serve another group of children. If you’d like to learn more about Garden Quarter, please check out their website, http://www.gardenquarter.org/ .
