THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Crivitz School Receives Funds For Book Giveaway Program
Issue Date: June 17, 2020
The Crivitz Area Woman's Club (CAWC) reports its continued partnership with the M&M Area Community Foundation (MMACF) by receiving a $1,500 grant from the Youth Field of Interest Fund held at the MMACF. MMACF grant funding is made available through the charitable contributions of local donors through endowments established and managed by the MMACF to support local nonprofit organizations and provide scholarships.
The $1500 grant will support a Book Giveaway program in the Crivitz School District. This program purchases books for early childhood through third grade students to keep as their own. School personnel select and order the books to meet the needs of their students. The book giveaway occurs 2 or 3 times during the school year as determined by the school. CAWC members assist during the giveaway to help the students find appropriate books.
Literacy is a key to a child's positive self-image and future success. It gives them the ability to become confident, self-sufficient adults and add to, rather than take from, their local community. Books help show them a world of opportunities available to them if they work for it. The CAWC believes that if we help these students, they will grow up to help others through service and charities in their community.
As a service organization, the Crivitz Area Woman's Club holds multiple fundraisers each year in order to provide funding to area schools, charities and organizations. The CAWC is extremely grateful to the MMACF for its support and partnership in fulfilling the Club's purpose to "touch lives through service, charity, and social activities."
