Change a Child’s Story – Book Drive and Social Gathering

Interested in meeting Catholic Professionals that enjoy charity work and offering?  You are invited to share an evening to promote and share the remarkable compassionate works of Catholic Charities Community Services that help the most vulnerable in our community. Let’s come together for a fun evening celebrating literacy and supporting the children of Westside Head Start with the gift of reading. As Catholic Charities partners with the National Education Association to promote Read Across America day in March, let’s promote the importance of reading and literacy in the home and classroom and share new or gently used books. Catholic Charities Westside Head Start and Early Head Start provide comprehensive, early, continuous, year-round, childhood education through a holistic approach by working with the whole family. Programs emphasize pre-reading, language, math, cognitive skills, health, and social and emotional competence to prepare disadvantaged children for school and to maximize their potential for a bright future.

The Refuge Café is opening space and sharing their support in this thoughtful event. Come share your time and treasure to meet and mingle and with kindhearted supporters at a gathering place where people from all walks of life can meet and have meaningful conversations. Your donations will help and serve our community’s most vulnerable and be collected throughout the event. All donations are greatly appreciated by the children of Westside Head Start and Catholic Charities Community Services.   The ability to read at a young age sets the stage for academic success. The good news? We can do something about it.   .
