In the summer months when school is out, many of our guests bring their children who don’t have the opportunity to be in a structured summer camp program.
Our volunteer, Noel O’Brien, came up with the idea of having a reading program for the children during Soup Kitchen hours. With the help of many others, we now have a children’s table and chairs, a constant supply of children’s books from Noel O’Briens grandchildren, and the Book Fairies (thebookfairies.org) . We also have specific volunteers who read and play with the children. The children are loving it!
For privacy reasons we will never show pictures of our guests, but below you will see the children’s reading table with our wonderful volunteer Thais De Lima.
