As part of NEPC's Annual United Way Campaign, NEPC held a volunteer event to assemble Literacy Kits. Check out our pictures below!
What are United Way Literacy Kits?
- Literacy kits inspire creativity among volunteers and bring books to life to deepen children’s reading experience.
- Volunteers design related props, games or other activities to make reading interactive and enjoyable for everyone involved.
- Making literacy kits is easy and exciting!
