The Winnebago County Association for Home and Community Education (HCE) has implemented the Wisconsin Bookworms™ project in partnership with Wisconsin Public Television, UW Extension Family Living Program, and Winnebago County Head Start Program.
This project provides volunteers to read and provide books free of charge to children enrolled in Head Start.
Our members work to provide books free of charge to children who might otherwise not have a chance to cherish a book of their own. Volunteer mentors meet with the children during the school year to read and do related activities with them. The book and activity worksheet are then given to the children for sharing with their family.
