EMC partners with Family Connections and Ferst Readers Program



Emanuel Medical Center hosted a Ferst Readers drive to educate and promote literacy to their employees to serve children in Emanuel County. Ferst Readers' mission is "strengthening communities by providing quality books and literacy resources for children and their families to use at home during the earliest stages of development." Ferst Readers wants every child to have the best start in life - and nothing helps a baby's brain develop more than exposure to rich language and loving interactions.


The key is having books in the home and being read to - right from birth. Our vision is "to create better learners, brighter futures, and stronger communities by giving every child under five access to quality books in their homes." Children in the Ferst Readers literacy program receive a bookstore-quality, age-specific book, and resources mailed to them at home every month until their fifth birthday. Emanuel Medical Center employees contributed $910 in their drive on September 21st.
