Bilingual Book Drive

     The Florence YMCA is hosting the Migratory Education Program during the month of July.

     Hispanic children of migrant workers come to the YMCA from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to get help with english/Language Arts and Math.  This will help fill in the education gap because of the children changing schools so often.

     The YMCA is planning an evening program on July 18th for the parents of these children to let them know what services are available in our community.   Most of  the parents do not speak English, so the Y is asking for bilingual books (English/Spanish) books from preschool to middle school level for the parents to take home so that the children can study at home with their parents' help.

     The churches in our community have been asked to help with this book drive.  You can help by:

1.  donating money -- donations must be in to the Florence Baptist Association by June 15th;

2.  purchasing bilingual books online -- books must be in to the FBA by July 12th

     Thanks for your help in this ministry project.
