An early literacy program facilitated by volunteers from United Way's Early Childhood Education Impact Council, with support from United Way staff, that allows volunteers to read and give books to children in the local W.I.C. (Women, Infants, Children) offices in Lewisburg, Selinsgrove and Sunbury.
Program coordinator, Janice Adair, is a retired Reading Specialist and Learning Support Teacher and worked in the Shikellamy School District for 33 years.
“One of the reasons that I became a teacher is that my father could not read or write,” says Adair. “He severely struggled when he was learning to read and he quit school in third grade. My grandparents didn’t value education. I had a wonderful dad and I saw how hard every day life can be when you can’t read or write,” she adds.
