We know Thanksgiving was last week, but this week at the Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) we’re feeling pretty darn thankful.
We’re thankful for the many generous donors who gave 359 children’s books and dynamic literacy programming to the kids we serve for #GivingTuesday, and all our supporters who have donated so far this year.
While children all over the world have been sending Santa their wish lists, two young CLiF donors had another idea. They decided to put Santa to work for a cause they cared about.
The Patchett-Walsh grandchildren chose to raise money for the Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) by making the beautiful Santas you see above and selling them to friends and family during their Thanksgiving feast.
The day before Thanksgiving, Duncan rolled up to McLaughlin Middle School with the CLiF mobile chock full of books. CLiF specifically came to visit the ELL students – or English Language Learners – at this school in Manchester, NH. Almost all of these ELL students are New Americans, whose families have recently relocated to Manchester from all over the world.
