Assistance League of Houston Head Start Readers Chairperson Marilyn Brooks delivered 234 children’s books this week to Venetia Peacock, senior Head Start director and Armando Rodriguez, community partnership manager.
Through Operation School Bell, the League provides books and volunteers to read at the Pugh center. This year volunteers plan to read virtually to children due to COVID-19 precautionary measures.
League volunteer Brooks, a former teacher, says the League and Head Start longtime partnership is a good match because both organizations share a mission to help children in need in school.
