19 Jul Mattel Inspires Confidence in Young Students
DONATION: MATTEL LEAPFROG DRY ERASE BOARDS AND MARKERS
LIVES IMPACTED: 65
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) matches the personal interests and skills of older Americans with opportunities to help solve community problems. RSVP volunteers choose how and where they want to serve, making it easy for older adults to find the types of volunteer service opportunities that appeal to them. A group of volunteers chose to assist students at Dyersburg Primary School in Dyersburg, Tennessee.
The school’s academic program, Helping One Student To Succeed (HOSTS), provides struggling Kindergarten students with one-on-one help. RSVP received LeapFrog dry erase boards and dry erase markers through Good360 and used them to help children at the school. Each child received a board and a set of markers so they could practice their writing skills in an easy and fun way. Their RSVP mentor helped them with reading and writing letters, words, and sentences.
The dry erase boards and markers were perfect for students in Kindergarten to use as a learning tool. The boards were easy to erase and reuse, ensuring the kids would be able to use them for as long as they needed. Thanks to the donation, students were able to become more confident in their ability to read and write! Thank you to all involved in this donation!
