In 2017, more than 1,000 local three and four year old children in Putnam, St. Johns, Clay, Nassau, Bradford and Baker counties received a bag filled with 8-10 books. Child care classrooms were visited with a themed literacy program that included a special story time and activities to go with the theme.
This year, ELC hopes to reach their goal of 1,200 books and could use your help.
