Look at all the smiling faces from Campagna Center families and staff as we packed and distributed gifts bags at our Holiday Toy Store! More than 450 Wright to Read and Early Childhood families picked up gift bags full of books, toys and other presents for their kids at no cost to them. Thank you to everyone who donated enough toys to make sure every Campagna child gets to feel some holiday magic this time of year.

Wright to Read’s students became archeologists from the future at our annual Readers Take the Stage this November, unearthing objects like toys and everyday items and explaining their significance to the over 120 attendees at our Museum of Antiquities. In addition to the presentations, students explored literacy-based activities such as writing letters to their future selves for our time capsule and digging for letters to form words for our youngest readers. It was a wonderful turn-out of our families and volunteer tutor-mentors to showcase their learning and hard work over the past couple of months.

Thank you to everyone who joined us this past weekend at the Taste of Scotland and Scottish Christmas Walk Parade! It was wonderful to toast the holiday season together and raise critical funds for the children and families we are honored to serve through Campagna Center's educational programs.

We are grateful for all the volunteers, donors and the entire Campagna community for all that you do to support Campagna Center during the holiday season and all year long.
