FREE Books & FREE lunch

Why? Because when children don't read enough in the summer, they lose many skills they learned during the school year. This is called the "summer slide." One way that we are working to combat the summer slide is by providing free books and activities in the park!
Our thanks to the Altoona Children's Council, Pedersen Elementary PTO and a generous anonymous donor for supplying books over the years! Thank you also to Feed a Child Nyre You and other community partners for providing this year's free lunches!
