Today, the team at JohnstonWells Public Relations donated more than 50 books to low-income children at the Mile High Montessori Early Learning Centers.
Since January, JohnstonWells has sought the community’s assistance to expand Mile High Montessori’s lending library by asking people to donate new or gently-used books. The initiative is part of the JW’s celebration of 40 years in business.
“We are grateful for this incredible support of the MHM lending library. When children start behind, they stay behind. For low-income families, access to a wide variety of books to read with their young children not only cultivates early literacy skills which are key to a child’s academic success but also instills a lifelong love of reading,” said Dr. Pamela Harris, President and CEO of Mile High Montessori Early Learning Centers. “By creating a strong connection between reading at home and reading in the classroom, parents and teachers partner to ensure that children are ready for school.”
Mile High Montessori Early Learning Centers provides early childhood care and education to low-income Denver children, in order to prepare them for school.
