UNION — Save the Children has run in-school and afterschool programs at two Union County Schools — Monarch Elementary and Foster Park Elementary — for the last six years.
Children grades K-5 receive reading supports, 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, and nutrition education. These programs instill a love of reading, help children read at grade level, and allow them to lead healthier lives. Caring individuals from across the United States and world help support these wonderful programs through their sponsorship of a local child.
Not only does sponsorship funds support Save the Children’s programs, it allows students to receive correspondence from their sponsors on a regular basis, giving them a window to the world outside their own. Through the exchange of letters, sponsors and students get to know each other and make lasting friendships.
