We joined Literacy Connexus . . .

Summertime is fun at Olmito Community Church!  This is the fourth year that we have partnered with the local school district for its Summer Meals program which provides breakfast and lunch to community children.


Between breakfast and lunch, adult and high school-age volunteers lead indoor and outdoor recreation, arts and crafts, and board games.  Elementary-age children also participate in math and science enrichment games and activities.


A favorite fun activity for the young participants is the reading center.  The children can relax and enjoy listening to stories read to them by National Honor Society student volunteers or they can pick out a book and get lost in their very own reading adventure. Six hundred books provided by Literacy Connexus will keep them engaged all summer.

Teenage participants benefit from the church's university intern who meets with students in small groups and one-on-one for college preparation activities.  Older program participants can also select books for their own summertime reading adventures.


Later this summer, Olmito Community Church plans to hold a Family Reading Fair for homeless children living in motels in neighboring Brownsville.  In the fall, the church will sponsor a Family Reading Fair at its neighborhood school located only a block away.
