Our Work Within The Community


We are proud to announce that with school back in session, for parents that have children needing assistance with schoolwork, there are locations and agencies available to help!

The City of Zanesville through CARES funds provided chrome books and are upgrading Spectrum services to the agencies listed below. If you are trying to juggle remote learning with your child and need WIFI accessibility contact one of these agencies to set up an appointment.

This morning, March 6th, 2020, Community Literacy Liaison Cindy Lawyer along with Project and Volunteer Coordinator Monica Mohr read to the first grade classrooms at Nashport Elementary School with BARD. In keeping with the chilly weather and freezing rain outside, the children read along with Cindy to the book, The Jacket I Wear in the Snow . All of the children were so well mannered and such great readers! We even managed to stifle our giggles when we got to the part about the long underwear, instead sharing mischievous glances with each other!

BARD thrilled us all with his amazing dance moves, high energy antics, and hugs worth lining up for! Every child, in each classroom, went home with a new Scholastic book. Thank you to Nashport Elementary for inviting us to spend the morning with you and your wonderful first grade students. We had such a great time reading with them this morning!

Today, March 4th, 2020 Community Literacy Liaison, Cindy Lawyer and Project & Volunteer Coordinator, Monica Mohr ventured to Dresden Elementary School with BARD to read with the 1st grade classrooms. The classes read along with the book "Red, A Crayon Story" and enjoyed a meet and greet with BARD. Check out the slideshow below to see what wonderfully attentive and interactive readers Dresden Elementary School is producing!

P.S. The pictures don't show it, but their hand raising and inference skills are top notch! Great job, kids!
