Reach a Child says ‘thanks’ for book donations
On behalf of Reach a Child I would like to give a heartfelt thank you to the Lake Placid Woman’s Club education CSP and members of the ESO book club for their recent donation to the Lake Placid Reach a Child program.
Fifty-five brand new books were donated to the Lake Placid Police Department. These books are placed into red backpacks and placed in the vehicles of first responders. The books can be given away to any child, not necessarily ones in crisis. It is all a matter of establishing a positive relationship at an early age that will carry on as the child ages. This is true crime prevention. It really does make a difference in the lives of kids.
Donations of new or slightly used children’s books can be dropped off at the Lake Placid Radio Shack and the Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce on an ongoing basis. For more information call Carol Pollard at 863-243-1200 or visit the website at www.reachachild.org
