Hundreds of families and children came out to have fun and learn at the second annual Read and Romp in Railroad Park. Organizers reported that participants took home 3,200 books, 400 School Readiness Calendars and 500 bike helmets, a double benefit for head injury prevention in the case of severe weather.
James McCrary of the Community Foundation enjoyed the chance to see our nonprofit partners in action, including Success by 6/Blueprint for School Readiness and Reach Out and Read. We were glad to be part of this successful day through our support of these programs, and we send out thanks to all the other great groups that helped to make this day such a success.
