Caring Cubs and the Cuyahoga County Public Library honored Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy of service to others and children in our community by giving the gift of reading. Caring Cubs kicked off our 2016 volunteer events at the North Royalton, South Euclid-Lyndhurst, and Parma-Snow branches of the Library.
Caring Cubs families generously donated nearly 170 books to Reach Out And Read (ROAR) and decorated 334 bookmarks that will be included in the donated books. From January 4-18 the Library has held a book drive to benefit ROAR, a nonprofit organization of medical providers who promote early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide. The Caring Cubs and book drive donations will be distributed to Reach Out and Read locations throughout our area.
Our three library branch locations also included a special story time for our Caring Cubs volunteers.
Thank you to the Cuyahoga County Public Library for including Caring Cubs in this project and to our families who braved the cold weather to donate and volunteer with us!
