Each year, TRRC works within the community to promote literacy. Last year, we formed a partnership with ECU Pediatric Specialty Clinic here in Greenville. This clinic serves children from 29 counties. Their goal was to put books in the hands of this children at the clinic, as well as provide information and resources to parents. We were able to help create a Lobby Library through our Pediatric Pals project and will be working to raise funds and books to provide children with books within their homes.
For the past 2 years, TRRC has also participated in ECU’s Earth Day Expo in April. During this time, TRRC members and volunteers read “earth day” books to children, offer Earth Day resources and books lists and share information about our council with parents.
This year, we hope to offer a “Happy Booksgiving” book give away at the Greenville Mall in November to provide children with books and/or literacy resources.
