Lori Henderson, Strong Start Program Co-ordinator, receives a donation from Greg Anderson, President of the Rotary Club of Brantford.

The $3,000.00 gift will be used to support the growth of Strong Start to reading programs in our community by training volunteer coaches to work with children aged 5-7 to practice and master basic literacy skills. The Letters, Sounds and Words program provides engaging games, activities and books for Volunteer Coaches to work with children on an individual basis for the duration of the 10 week program.
