How you helpAs our pool of volunteers and literacy supplies grows, so too, does our reach.
About usPoWeR! stands for Play, Write, and Read! We find it is also a great way to demonstrate the role that language and literacy play in the lives of children. ​ We are a Volunteer Organization in Lower Northern Michigan. We began in March of 2016 and are currently operating at twenty sites with our Original Book Bag Project. We have expanded to include four additional literacy give-away programs. We want to positively impact as many children and families as we are able! ​ For the Original Book Bag Project, we create bags of literacy and take them to food and baby pantries (and sometimes community events when invited). When children and their families come to feed their bellies, the children also select books and book bags with a puppet and writing materials to feed their minds.
