Drugs and illiteracy are the major concerns of people in this area, so providing quality books to our youth that are entertaining as well as educational, and something the entire family can enjoy, is something I want to contribute to.
Brewer, ME (PRWEB) November 11, 2013
Carol Lane, a physical therapist and CEO of Results Physical Therapy and Wellness Center, whose offices are located in Greater Brewer, Dexter and Dover-Foxcraft, Maine, has long been a supporter of literacy and activities that encourage reading. One activity she has recently adopted as a means of encouraging literacy is the USMC holiday program, Toys for Tots.
Long known for its humanitarian purpose to provide holiday gifts for underprivileged youth, an equally important goal for Toys for Tots is to provide books as part of its literacy program. Oftentimes, the books received will be the only books in that home. Brewer stated, “Drugs and illiteracy are the major concerns of people in this area, so providing quality books to our youth that are entertaining as well as educational, and something the entire family can enjoy, is something I want to contribute to."
She continued, “My wish for Christmas is that people will just pick up a book and read or listen along and see for themselves. It's time to have some fun and give our children a good education.”
The books she particularly prefers to give are Stories from the Golden Age, a line of adventure, mystery, science fiction, fantasy and western stories written by L. Ron Hubbard during the 1930s and 40s. Providing high interest books, loaded with action and that have a moralistic undertone—where it is important to do the right thing—is important she feels. Again in her own words, “I truly feel that the Golden Age Stories will make a big difference in enhancing the literacy levels of both children and even adults.”
