The Family Literacy Center


We were so happy to help our local Family Literacy Center with School Supplies for the new school year. The Family Literacy Center, located at 12 Park Way in Manville, RI helps to empower children and their families to enhance the quality of their lives through education, support, advocacy & opportunity. Kelly Dwyer, director of the non-profit program, and middle school student Kylee Bullard (pictured) picked up the school supplies this afternoon to bring to the center for all the students to use :) We were so happy to be able to help out! If you are in the area stop by the FLC to see all the fun things they have planned for the community ๐Ÿ“šโœ๏ธ๐Ÿ–
