Martin County, Florida In The News For National Volunteer Month
Local Jupiter Volunteers Help Kids Succeed In Martin County
Pajama Jam 2019 In Martin County is a Community Event that Highlights Our Volunteer Spirit!
Recently, about 350 people got comfy in their jammies and headed to Helping People Succeed offices in Jensen Beach for the Pajama Jam where local luminaries read to Martin County’s children aged newborn to five-years old.
Spearheaded by Helping People Succeed, the program is funded by The Community Foundation of Martin & St. Lucie Counties, Children’s Services Council of Martin County, United Way and other partnering Care Providers. In addition to hearing stories, wee ones and parents enjoyed the Humane Society’s Paws to Read dogs, healthy snacks, books, prizes, crafts, a visit from firemen and their truck, milk and cookies, picture-taking in the photo booth and meeting a local author. Some children even got their first library cards! Participants received a goody bag that contained literacy tips for parents, a book, a rubber ducky, an oral health kit, library information and more.
Kudos to all the local organizations who were on hand with information and educational materials. Among them were Wee Talk, Hulafrog, Children’s Services Council of Martin County, 211, Whole Child Connection, Florida Department of Health Martin County, Martin County Library System and the Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin & Okeechobee Counties. The Language & Literacy Connection envisions a future where all of Martin County’s children enter kindergarten ready to learn reading on grade level and graduate from high school prepared for college or career.
