To celebrate Family Literacy Day, the Alberta Prairie C.O.W. made visits to five different agencies located within the city of Edmonton - Norwood Child & Family Resource Centre, Bent Arrow Aboriginal Parent Link, the Garrison Military Resource Centre, Red Road Healing Society, and West Edmonton Parent Link in conjunction with the Jamie Platz YMCA.
Each agency used the C.O.W. bus visit as an opportunity to build awareness of their literacy programs and the staff were delighted to receive a Legacy Library to enhance their work.
Many parents and children came onto the bus for the first time and were pleasantly surprised by the welcoming atmosphere and variety of activities available for parents and children. The agencies all worked hard to network with their clients to provide a fun-filled event for all those who took the time to participate.
What parents and participants have said about the program
“Awesome initiative! "
