Club Spotlight: The Cambridge Literacy Club

As our Fall semester was wrapping up, the Cambridge Literacy Club volunteered their time, reading to children that do not have permanent shelter.

CAMBRIDGE–For the first five days of Dec. 2014, the Literacy Club volunteered their time to children and youth through the Path to Home program at the Cambridge United Methodist Church. Meeting in a cozy fireside room that was beautifully decorated in the spirit of the Holiday season, it was evident that this was an event greatly looked forward to by all who participated. The children eagerly chose books that interested them and displayed their fantastic storytelling skills, often giving each character its own unique voice and highlighting the colorful illustrations to their audience. When being read to by a member of the club, they listened with enthusiasm. It was a wonderful opportunity and a heartwarming experience to see the joy that reading brought to their young lives, and also to the members of the Literacy Club, in this season of giving.
