In addition to running a great United Way Employee Campaign to support local agencies, Snyders-Lance is the Corporate Sponsor for ReadingPals in Taylor County, a tutorial program that has provided one hour of instructional assistance each Wednesday after school for the past 13 weeks at Perry Primary School. ReadingPals volunteers work with second grade struggling readers to help them improve their reading skills. At the end of each session, students get to choose a new book to take home and keep in their personal library. Snyders-Lance provides funding for these books.
On Wednesday, March 9th all students and volunteers were treated to a “ReadingPals End-of-the-YearCelebration” sponsored by Snyders-Lance.
Plans are now being made to expand this program during the 2015-16 school year. Additional volunteers are needed. Specific program training will be provided for all volunteers. Please contact Charlotte Rice at 850-999-6000 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
