The gift of reading

The gift of reading

Volunteers with the Cara McCollum Birthday Book Project visited students at Stewart Elementary on Wednesday to hand out books for the summer. Students with birthdays in June, July and August recieved their birthday books and watched a short film to learn how the Birthday Book Project got its start. Suzie Dunn, Hallie Foust and Annalee Foust, volunteers with the project, organize the books before wishing students a “Happy Birthday,” and giving them the gift of reading. Photo by Caitlyn Sweet
