Pete Nance Boys and Girls Club-
The Pete Nance Boys and Girls Club, located in downtown Greensboro, GA is an incredible organization that empowers, educates, and protects the vulnerable children in our community. We believe that it is invaluable to serve our children and make sure they have a place to learn, fellowship, and explore. The Pete Nance Boys and Girls Club has created this space for our community and we strive to help support them financially and with our time so they continue their good work.
Ferst Readers is an incredible organization that provides one book a month to each child that signs up for their program. Research has proven that the facilitating of early and emergent literacy skills in preschool aged children is crucial for further literacy development. Ferst Readers enables children who may not have much print or reading resources at home to have easy access to them. Kate Dicamillo states, “Reading should not be presented to children as a chore, a duty. It should be offered as a gift.” Having a book show up in the mail each month allows for every child to not only receive a gift but exposure to reading and print they may not have had otherwise.
