Book Reviews: Need Summer Reading Ideas?
Summer is only halfway over- vacations are mostly over, school supplies are on sale and back to school clothes are out! It's also when we remember that there is a probably a summer reading assignment hiding in the backpack that hasn't been opened since May. We have a few ideas for how you can start the donation conversation and tackle that summer reading project at the same time! Click below to learn more.
Reminder- Changes to Advocate Program Communication
We've heard your feedback! As a reminder, we are moving our normally scheduled bi-weekly Advocate Newsletter to once a month. In addition to a once a month newsletter, you will receive an e-mail based on your location with your community specific opportunities and news updates. This will help us streamline communication and ensure you're hearing most about the activities in your area. In addition, the Monthly Newsletter will be posted to our Volunteer Opportunities page so you can review it in the event you don't see it in your inbox. Questions? Contact Mandy, the Volunteer Coordinator.
