Community Service Chair Mary Hoover, awarded $779.01 in Duck Bucks to support a literacy project at Pinecrest Elementary in East Bremerton. Our Duck Bucks will buy every child in the school a book to read over spring break, and will add 20 Wonder Books to the reading groups’ library for 4th and 5th graders. Amy Horan (pictured), Pinecrest’s Reading Specialist, shared that kids still love to read, even in this tech age, and she thanked our club members for keeping literacy in the forefront for our local students.
Thanks to our generous sponsors of the 2019 Duck Race, and the whole community who purchased Duck Tickets, 430 students will be reading at home over spring break!
