Readers For Life!
In Tucson this week we’re doing the Readers for life project. Here’s a Reader’s for life event picture of our volunteers when they go to visit the children and give them a book to take home.
Rocky Raccoon is a favorite; however, when Patti is in costume, she can’t see anything so it takes a couple of volunteers to help her to navigate. Rocky also hands out masks so the kids will be like him and bookmark with our information on it.

BACKPACKS FOR KIDS!!
This is a new project starting in January 2018. Take a backpack and a list of needed items, fill it and bring it back to the luncheon in February. We are going to try and get groups of backpacks (about 20 to 25 per school) to donate to public elementary schools located in low-income communities. We have contacted two of those schools in TUSD so far, and they are both excited to have us support their students. Many students who need a back pack, have limited or no supplies from home. The beginning of school is not the only time there is a need. The school counselors will distribute the backpacks on an as needed basis. Pick up your empty backpack at the January luncheon, or contact Jan Pitts 403 1299 or Patti Pace 241 6849 to get one.
