Target Corp. has donated $150,000 to support school literacy programs at three elementary schools in Hilo.
The “Better Together Community Reading” grant will help children and families at Keonepoko Elementary, Mountain View Elementary and Naalehu Elementary.
“Literacy is the foundation for learning,” said Kau-Keaau-Pahoa Complex Area Superintendent Mary Correa. “As a complex, we are committed to proactively instilling and nurturing a lifelong love of reading in our students and families. This grant will positively impact our community for many years to come.”
The grant will go to providing reading materials for families and developing reading literacy activities.
