This spring HAULYP is inviting you to do some spring cleaning to help the Houston Community. This spring season we are accepting donations for the Houston Area Urban League Family Literacy Program and Dress for Success.
Houston Area Urban League hosts Family Literacy Nights which provides guided training to parents in HISD elementary schools to help improve reading skills among the youth. “We provide Guided Reading training to parents in HISD elementary schools, because Guided Reading is the solution teachers are using in their classrooms all across the district,” said Judson Robinson, HAUL CEO. “We are working to help parents understand how to support their children at home with the same tool being used in HISD classrooms. We started the program last year, and it was a huge success.”
The training takes about an hour and is followed by a book giveaway and a hearty dinner. Attending children take home three or more books of their choosing to add to their home library. Representatives from the Houston Public Library will be there as well, helping students sign up for library cards.
During the upcoming General Body Meeting and Storytellers event, we are taking the following items:
- Suits & Dresses
- Children/Youth Books
- Donations for Amazon Kindles
