Summer Reading Celebration at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services

What a special, memorable time we had today at the Summer Reading Celebration! This event is co-sponsored by the Sacramento Public Library and Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services. Nora Shimoda and I and our sons, Cameron and Mark, were privileged to give out several hundred free books to children. Nora arranged for coverage by Channel 3, Channel 10, and the Sacramento Bee. This is what it's all about!

  1. Hi Celeste
    It was so wonderful to read your recent ASHA posting and then discover the amazing work with literacy access you are doing in your home area for kids from underprivileged homes. I work with a small group of women undertaking a similar project in Fiji. We can only hope and pray that we achieve a small percentage of the success that your team has. Keep up the great work!
