Grace Community Church volunteers have been helping Cordova Elementary School kindergarten teachers and students by working with the children to reinforce the reading skills they are being taught. Each week, we spend an hour working with the children in each of the six classes who need the most help. A total of six volunteers are needed each week. Some volunteers go every week, others every other week, and others fill in as they can.
We also have a fall supply drive to purchase supplies for children whose families are not able to purchase all they need: supply boxes, chair bags, and agenda books. In addition, we collect coats, hats, and mittens/gloves for the Shelby County winter coat drive and deliver them directly to Cordova Elementary.
This year, we were able to purchase 14 supply boxes as well as a few chair bags and a stack of agenda books. Some were extras to have on hand as new students transfer in throughout the semester. The staff at the school extends their thanks to GCC for their support!
