Each year, Coastal Carolina University student-athletes read to kindergartners across Horry County to teach them a cycle of caring. This program shows the children the importance of giving to others as well as volunteerism.
This year’s program is being held on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at 8 a.m.
The athletes read, “The Giant Hug” by Sandra Horning to the students. The book is about a piglet who learns that teamwork is essential for getting a task done.
Following the reading, the children decorate cards to be delivered to Horry County’s elderly. The United Way of Horry County puts a card in each bag delivered to a home-bound senior in its May Day Bags on May 1.
The athletes also walk away with a sense of reward.
We would like to thank Danny and Christine from Eggs Up Grill in Conway for sponsoring this year’s book.
