Action and Collaboration

Chinle Planting Hope and Read at Home Family Literacy, Navajo Nation Rotarians, in Action and Collaboration working together and building hope in realistic ways with Navajo residents, many live miles from many basic resources—even running water!

Chinle Planting Hope and Read at Home are two grassroots nonprofits with the goals of supporting early literacy and building community: “readers make powerful leaders.”  Glenwood Rotarians have joined forces!

Read at Home is reaching out to tribal schools to support early literacy.  500 subscriptions! Yes, a year’s subscription to Highlight’s High Five are sent monthly to over 500 students attending tribal programs through Headstart, preschool, or first grade. School locations include St. Mary’s in Alaska, Fort Hall Headstart &  Elementary in Idaho,  Chief Targee (native language immersion charter school) in Idaho,  Chinle Preschool on the Navajo Nation, and FACE – a family literacy program in southern Arizona.

Another project is R.E.A.D in Beauty Bookmobile. This traveling library-on-wheels is ready to roll! Thank you, Glenwood Springs Noon Rotary, for providing books for the Bookmobile, clothes and household items to sell at the Thrift Store, and many hours of volunteer time to paint, sort, build shelving, and cheer everyone on.

Build community. Live with Hope. Walk in Beauty. “It’s truly happening.”  ALL are welcome to participate.
