HALO Read kick-off event a success
The Warren Coalition held a successful Help All Little Ones (HALO) Read kick-off event on Sunday, Nov. 22.
The Warren Coalition’s HALO Read program is an affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which mails free books to registered children, ages 0-4. The goal of the program is to develop a life-long love of reading.
“We were blessed with good weather and a great group of volunteers who read books to the children, played games with them, and handed out coloring books,” said HALO Read Coordinator Joyce Jenkins-Wimmer in a news release. “It was a strong start for a brand-new program. We look forward to growing it throughout the next year.”
Families can still register for HALO Read. Registration forms will be distributed at preschools, churches, and other venues around the county. A registration form may be obtained from the Warren County Community Center, located at 538 Villa Avenue, Front Royal, VA. It may also be downloaded from https://imaginationlibrary.com/usa/affiliate/VAWARREN/.
