“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ― Dr. Seuss
Thank you for your support in donating to this cause. Sigma Kappa at Truman State is partnering with the Kirksville Kiwanis Club to fundraise for the Adair County chapter of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library as part of Truman State's 2018 Greek Week. Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails FREE books to children from birth to age five in participating communities. 1, 172, 585 kids are registered across the world, and they have just passed the ONE MILLION mark for books that have been mailed.
Short-term, this program has been proven to increase the home literacy environment, increase attitudes toward reading and motivation to read, and increase interactions between caregivers and children during book reading. Long-term, this program have been proven to increase emerging literacy skills and enhanced kindergarten readiness. Because our chapter of Sigma Kappa and the Kirksville Kiwanis Club is sponsoring this program locally, 100% of all funds raised will remain in the Adair County community. $25 sponsors 1 child in the program for an entire YEAR. Every $1 invested is estimated to have a $7-$9 return in the community :)))
The program and your gift will directly impact the children of the community that has given us so much, which will lead to large-scale changes in the family and community life in Adair County.
Thanks a million!!! As always, we are so thankful for your encouragement and support.
