Our members partner with the local Senior Center and are paired up with second graders at a local elementary school to increase the students’ reading skills. Our members and local seniors have enjoyed being part of the reading activities.
Books of My Own
We encourages literacy by partnering with elementary school classroom teachers in the Tri-Valley . We purchase books that teachers choose to use in their classroom. Afterwards, each child gets to bring home and keep a copy of the book and thus a “book of my own.”
Elementary students, grades TK – 5, visit our store and, with the help of their “personal shopper”, select new clothing, including jacket, socks and underwear. They also receive a shoe voucher and at least one new book. Their smiles as they leave are as big as the bags they are carrying!
We partner with the Tri-Valley Haven Food Pantry by making bi-weekly food contributions. The pantry distributes free groceries to more than 2,000 low-income Tri-Valley residents each month.
