Baby book bags

  • December 7, 2012
Members of Canon-McMillan High School’s Love Your Culture Club and the National Honor Society prepared “Baby Book Bags” for the Literacy Council of Southwestern Pennsylvania. The project features bright yellow totes that contain children’s books and literature emphasizing the importance of reading to babies from birth. The totes are distributed by the Literacy Council to new mothers at Washington Hospital, prenatal programs in the Mon Valley and pediatric practices in Greene County. The Literacy Council hands out more than 1,800 book bags every year. From left, senior Marissa Chirumbolo, sophomore Mariah Chandler and freshman Dara Thomas check the hand-stuffed bags. The students packed 200 totes.
