Will You Help a Child Learn to Read?
Camp  Sharigan
If you can donate 2 hours a month, you can help a child learn to read.  The Camp Sharigan Project is returning to St. John’s this fall on September 16th.  This time we will be offering a free reading clinic from September to May.  We have actually had children move up 4 grade levels in reading in one year.  These are children who entered the program failing.  You are the key.  We need volunteers to work with the children.  All curriculum and supplies are provided.  You do not need to be a teacher or have any special training.  The program is designed to work with volunteers –middle school, high school, college, parents, and seniors.  All you need is a desire to help a child learn to read.  For more details, contact Elaine Clanton Harpine at 361-867-8040 or clantonharpine@hotmail.com 
 
If you teach a child to read, you can change the world.
