Roanoke Chapter - Local Project
On May 7, 2019 the Roanoke Chapter of Chums, Inc. supported our National Theme, “Listen to the children…enrich their lives”, by donating two Literacy Centers to the Eureka Play Center (Positive Learning and Adventure for Youth) after school program, and Toadly Kids Early Learning Center. One hundred seventy-five books ranging from preschool to third grade and display racks were donated to the centers. This donation was made to supplement, enrich, and encourage literacy, growth of the youth in the after-school care program centers. We believe, “Reading should not be presented as a chore, a duty, but offered as a gift.” Charles Scribner Jr. The directors and children were extremely delighted and enthused to receive these valuable resources for their centers.
