On Wednesday, September 14, Literacy Inc. (LINC) hosted an inspiring employee engagement event with our new friends at Joele Frank, an international public relations and investor relations firm with offices in New York and San Francisco.
These volunteers were excited to learn about LINC and dedicated their time to assembling Literacy Kits for distribution at SBH Health & Wellness Center in The Bronx.
Over 250 Literacy Kits were prepared for new mothers who give birth at SBH, each filled with practical items: a newborn onesie, book, totebag, and magnet that reminds families of the importance of supporting literacy from birth.
Moreover, families can enjoy a wealth of multilingual and culturally representative children’s books inside a literacy hub adjacent to the pediatric registration center and will be invited to upcoming early literacy programming for newborns and toddlers in that welcoming area.
Joele Frank is generously covering the cost for all kit materials and shipping charges as part of their activation, and all of these kits were sent directly to Ann Hennessey, Director of Maternal Child Health at SBH for her team to distribute.
Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers at Joele Frank for helping LINC and SBH Health System raise healthy readers in The Bronx!
