Save the Date! NE Sertoma Hogfest

ECARE is looking forward to Pensacola Northwest Sertoma’s Hogfest benefiting our mission here at ECARE. The ticket cost is $100 and enters you in a reverse raffle for a chance to win a 2020 Harley Davidson Fatboy Motorcycle (valued at $20,000) or $10,000 cash, whichever you prefer. Only 600 tickets will be sold! The ticket also admits two to a party on June 13th at 6:30 p.m. at the Harley Davidson dealership where you will have unlimited food from approximately 15 local restaurants and unlimited beer and wine (please drink responsibly), while listening to live music by True Blue Band. If you are not able to attend the party, a ticket would make a great “Date Night” gift for a couple you know. To get your ticket today, please contact ECARE at (850)433-6893 or director@escambiareads.org.

Reading Pal Volunteers Needed!

Every Child A Reader in Escambia (ECARE) is seeking Reading Pal volunteers interested in working with pre-kindergarten students for the 2019-20 school year at Montclair Elementary, Weis Elementary, Lincoln Park Elementary, Semmes Elementary and West Pensacola Elementary School.

The goal of this program is to help students build strong pre-literacy skills necessary for kindergarten success. Volunteers are trained to effectively use themed literacy kits that engage children in age appropriate learning activities. Mentor training and on-going support are provided to ensure a positive volunteer experience. A successful background check including a Level II security screening is required of all volunteers. Volunteers are asked to be smoke and tobacco free while volunteering as a Reading Pal.

A commitment of at least 45 minutes one day per week is requested. We allow some flexibility to accommodate our volunteers’ personal and professional schedules; volunteers may change volunteer time or day when necessary and may work in teams of two if desired.

To register for an upcoming Reading Pal training, visit www.uwwf.galaxydigital.org  and scroll down to events.  If you have any questions, please contact ECARE at 433-6893.
