The Good Deed Team has been active with ESL Programs across many of the states that we serve for years, with one of our largest projects including the Bilingual Family Literacy Program. Teaming up with Pelham City Schools, the Good Deed Team supported their Pelham in the Park event, where families could meet the teachers, grab a meal, and learn about summer learning opportunities.
The Pelham City Schools were in the area hit by the devasting Alabama tornadoes in April. The Good Deed Team brought household door prizes to give away, hotdogs and hamburgers for the families attending, plus food bags that included coloring pages for the children. The event was meant to bring the families and children together in a fun way that also allowed them to restock on items they may have had to go without due to the weather circumstances.
The teammates enjoyed getting to serve this community who has dealt with so much in the last few months. The kids seemed excited to receive the resource bags and learn more about the ESL summer learning opportunities available. The team hopes to continue working alongside the City Schools and was grateful to be part of this event.
