Thank You to everyone who helped us have a successful summer program of promoting literacy for children in Laconia. Thank you to all our financial and in kind donators, that allowed us to cover 10 weeks of literacy donations to approximately 340 families with over 500 children. These donations enabled us to purchase books, journals, pencils, coloring books, and colored pencils. Thank you to the Laconia Public Library and Gail Drucker, the Congregational Church of Laconia and Reverend Paula Gile for being our fiscal sponsor, Got Lunch Volunteers who made the delivery of materials possible, and the 99% of parents who responded to the Got Lunch Survey who said that their children read and enjoyed the literacy materials. Their comments were especially heartwarming.
Got Literacy Laconia was started in 2014 by a group of Got Lunch Volunteers. Their goal was to supplement the Got Lunch deliveries with literacy materials. Education does not stop on the last day of school, whether it is graduation or summer vacation.
The small effort of giving a child a book or a magazine feeds their minds as food feeds the rest of their bodies. You can help us with this educational nourishment for next summer. If you have questions , contact : Got Literacy Laconia, c/o Sarah Davis, 7 Bell Hill Drive, Laconia N.H. 03246.
