Helping Children: a St. Mark's Passion

Many thanks to the St. Mark's parishioners who are now participating in the thriving Thumbs Up after-school tutoring program at Port Royal Elementary School. Here's another "passion" opportunity for those who want to help younger kids:  First Books of Beaufort provides books, and volunteers to read them to Title I and Head Start schools in the Beaufort/Port Royal area. Once a month, readers spend a half hour sharing stories, letters and numbers with bright-eyed four year olds. Check its web site:  www.firstbooksofbeaufort.comand experience the love you can give--and the love that little ones can bring into your life.  ---Alison Davidow, St. Mark's Outreach and Mission
