Pic(s) Of The Day - 09.08.15 - Ribbon Cutting

We gathered at Legacy Southwest for t6he ribbon cutting ceremony for our first Reading Corner. A few months ago, Legacy Community Health started an initiative to make sure every child between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old received a book with every well child visit.

There is a direct correlation between a child's ability to read and their health. Additionally, in many under-served communities there is only 1 book per 300 children. As I have told people, if a family has a limited income and needs to decide between putting food on the table or purchasing a book, the decision is going to be food. I'm proud that we're helping put books in the hands of children.
