Grace Health Receives a Grant from Chemical Bank

By August 1, 2018Health Care News

Renee Underwood and Sarah Russell of Chemical Bank present Linda Wetherbee, CPNP and Diane Craig of Grace Health with a check for $3,500 to purchase books for Grace Health’s Reach Out and Read, Early Literacy Program. New, age-appropriate books are given to children 6 months – 5 years of age by the provider during their well child visit. The provider explains to the parent/guardian the importance of reading to/with a child – linking health care to literacy.

Grace Health’s Reach Out and Read, Early Literacy Program started in 2004. Through the continued generosity of organizations like Chemical Bank, Grace Health has provided over 53,700 books to children since the start of the program. Chemical Bank stated, “We hope our donation will help these children develop a greater appreciation for reading, while at the same time help to improve literacy among the younger population.”
