First Class Children’s Foundation: Crafting a Better Tomorrow
Now, before we dive headfirst into this marvelous book vending machine, let’s take a moment to tip our hats to the wizards behind the curtain: the First Class Children’s Foundation. These fantastic folks are on a mission to create a better community by working their magic through various programs that aim to captivate kids, create positive school experiences, and ignite the fires of literacy, creativity, and imagination.
Founder Matt Reed, believes that literacy is the secret sauce to a brighter future. He’s the mastermind behind First Class Children’s Foundation. He has been instrumental in purchasing other Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machines that have taken root at schools like CG Johnson, Juniata, and now, Wasson Elementary. When asked about the inspiration for getting behind these booktastic contraptions, Reed had this to say:
“Literacy is one of the core principles that we believe in at First Class, and being able to get books in the hands of kids is super important to us.”
Pure Joy and Excitement in Dubois PA
Picture the scene: the gymnasium at Wasson Elementary is buzzing with anticipation, and the air is practically sparkling with excitement. Suddenly, Reed, our book-loving magician, unveils the Inchy’s Book Vending Machine, and the kids erupt in jubilant cheers. It’s the kind of magical moment that would make even the most grizzled book lovers shed a tear of joy.
Reed is not just about pushing buttons on a vending machine; he’s about pushing boundaries and giving kids something to treasure. He says, “I love to see the excitement from the kids, and I work really hard all year to make sure that we can do stuff like this.” And honestly, who can blame him? Witnessing that surge of energy and happiness in the kids’ faces must be like getting a dose of pure sunshine.
10,000 Books and Counting: The Magic of Giving
Now, here’s where the real magic happens. The First Class Children’s Foundation has conjured up an astonishing number of books for young readers. Reed proudly proclaims, “Over the course of time since we became First Class Children’s Foundation, we’ve given away over 10,000 books to local kids.” That’s right, 10,000 books! But here’s the twist – it’s not just any book that pops out of Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine; the kids get to choose their literary adventure.
A Ripple of Kindness: Beyond Literacy
But hold on to your wizard hats, because this foundation is about more than just literacy; it’s about kindness too. Board Member Jennifer Reynolds-Hamilton sums it up perfectly: “The mission of this is not only literacy but also kindness.” The idea is simple yet profound: by encouraging young ones to do kind things for others, they’re planting the seeds for a future generation of compassionate adults. It’s a ripple effect that promises to make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time.
In a world filled with gadgets and gizmos, it’s heartwarming to see organizations like the First Class Children’s Foundation sprinkle a little magic into our kids’ lives. So, here’s to books, imagination, and the enchanting “Imagination Station” at Wasson Elementary – may it continue to inspire and create a world where kindness and literacy go hand in hand.
