Cork Tree Creative Reads Stories to Seniors for Grandparents Day

As part of its Cork Tree Cares program, the Cork Tree Creative team joined the Metro East Literacy Project at the Clyde C. Jordan Senior Center in East St. Louis to read stories to seniors about what it means to be a grandparent in a celebration of Grandparents Day.

The purpose of the Metro East Literacy Project is to promote literacy to adults and children by providing access to books, libraries, reading lessons, and quality reading experiences. To learn more about the Metro East Literacy Project, including how to volunteer, visit
