Organization gears fall project towards literacy for Head Start students in Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A supporting organization of the United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley launched its fall volunteer project geared towards Head Start students.

Women United volunteers handcrafted 94 sight word booklets for children ages three to five years old. The booklets use clear sealable baggies as the pages so that contact can be exchanged as needed.

Pages include pictures of common items and the name of the item under the image.

“I think it feels great to be able to do something like that and it feels great to be able to partner with so many others in the community. And, so many others are so focused on helping our community to be more successful," said Rachel Chambless, relationship coordinator of the United Way.

Women United partnered with the United Way, Ferst Readers, and Benning Hills Head Start to provide the booklets to students.
