LRGH receives grant for literacy program aimed at young children

LACONIA — LRGHealthcare recently announced that Reach Out and Read program was awarded a grant from Target Corporation. In recognition of the efforts of LRGHealthcare in promoting childhood literacy, the grant will help purchase books for our Reach Out and Read program.

"Reach Out and Read engages each child's doctor to speak to parents about the importance of reading aloud to their children every day. The doctor gives every child ages six months through five years a brand new culturally and developmentally appropriate book to take home and keep," said Karen Davis of LRGHealthcare's Practice Management Department.

The grant is part of Target's ongoing efforts to build strong, safe and healthy communities across the country. These efforts include Target's long history of giving five percent of its profit to communities, which today equals more than $4 million every week. As part of this commitment, Target is on track to give $1 billion for education by the end of 2015 to help kids learn, schools teach and parents and caring adults engage.

"At Target, we are committed to serving local communities where we do business," said Laysha Ward, President, Community Relations, Target. "That's why we are proud to partner with LRGHealthcare as we work to strengthen communities and enrich the lives of our guests and team members."
