The YMCA has decided not to host our Homeless Makeover. We decided to change our project due to the limited time frame given.
An Advocacy for Literacy
What: An event where we promote literacy and reading among the adult population. We want guest speakers to talk about why reading is important and how literature has a powerful impact in our lives. Reitz Jazz Band would perhaps play during the event. We will have a children's section where volunteers will read children's books.
Who: Our target audience are young adults, teachers, students, the general public. Partner up with the Franklin Street Events Association. For food we will produce a brochure with the restaurants and types of foods available on and near Franklin Street.
Justin has created a form for people to suggest guest speakers.
Jacob Ferguson attended to take photos for YearBook and to receive information to write an article for the YearBook and the Reitz Mirror.
