SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – November 1, 2022 – Supplemental Health Care (SHC) is honored to collaborate with Love for Literacy to promote Family Literacy Day this November 1st. To mark the occasion, SHC has donated hundreds of books and provided family literacy resources to their school district partners across the country.
Multicultural books recommended by Love for Literacy’s founder, Dr. Kelly Byrd, as well as her children’s book, Like Sunshine on an Otherwise Miserable Day, were donated to these schools to help promote more literary diversity and representation in libraries and classrooms. Dr. Byrd also provided family literacy activities and online resource recommendations for students, parents and caregivers, and school professionals.
SHC’s Schools division selected school districts that primarily serve disadvantaged and marginalized students. Through continued philanthropic events and partnerships, SHC strives to make a difference in both education and healthcare to ensure a more equitable future for all.
Supplemental Health Care’s goal is to continue supporting our schools and school professionals so they can focus on the students they care for. For more information on what Supplemental Health Care is doing for Family Literacy Day, visit shccares.com/love-for-literacy.
