The Impact of Our Volunteers
Barbara Linker and Brian Foster are no strangers to the Partnership. Together they have put in 45 hours of service since joining us as volunteers in October 2016.
“Brian and I so enjoy volunteering at the Partnership,” Barbara says. “The books given to the children in the various projects are first quality. Knowing this may be a child’s first book makes us proud to be a volunteer for the Partnership.”
Over the last several months, Barbara and Brian have helped us label over 5,000 books for our Reach Out and Read program and Boogie with Books events, and organized approximately 20 of our theme boxes. They helped us prepare for the Literacy Builds Gaston meeting back in May, as well as our big Spooktacular event last October. Every hour that they give helps us tremendously!
Thank you to Barbara, Brian and all of our outstanding volunteers for helping us expand the reach of our programs in so many ways. If you would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities at the Partnership, call (704) 922-0900.
