Jordan-Matthews High School Key Club, Carolinas District

– purchased the book “Love You Forever” for first grade students who learned to read the book and then took the books to an area nursing home and read the books to residents there. Many of the children did not have grandparents so the program allowed them to adopt a grandparent for the day. The Key Club helped with teaching the children to read the book and helped with the interaction at the nursing home.
