The Bojangles Foundation Fund has awarded a $1,000 grant to Carteret Partnership for Children to support our Reach Out and Read program.
Reach Out and Read supports doctors in their efforts to “prescribe” reading to young children and families. At regular checkups from newborn to 5 years of age, medical providers use in-depth knowledge, as well as their expertise on child development, to give parents guidance about the importance of reading aloud and early literacy. Children leave their well-child visit with a beautiful, brand-new age and culturally appropriate book in hand; ensuring families have the tools they need to read together at home.
The Partnership’s Reach Out and Read program is partnered with Kids Rule Pediatrics, PA, Carteret Children's Clinic and Oceanside Pediatrics.
This grant is part of Bojangles Foundation Fund Literacy Champaign.
We are so grateful to our community partners!
