Summer Literacy Heroes: Read to kids

United Way of Southwest Michigan and Be Healthy Berrien present Read Up! A new addition to the Meet Up and Eat Up Program. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) Meet up Eat Up program was created to ensure that children in lower-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations when they do not have access to the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs. This summer, we invite Whirlpool Employees to join us in making these days even more important to stopping the “summer slide” by holding a story hour for the kids at meal time. Volunteers will take a little wagon full of books as a mini mobile library to various meal time sites so kids can pick books to take home after story time and grow their reading skills.
