November is best known for Thanksgiving and Veterans Day, but there are many noteworthy days observed throughout the month to create awareness on a variety of topics. One such topic emphasized this month is Family Literacy, which focuses on the importance of literacy among young readers and their families. Reading as a family on a regular basis can help form stronger relationships and encourage positive growth and development. Literacy experts agree, reading with a child improves their cognitive development. Language skills, concentration, and creativity are shown to increase with consistent shared reading. Reading activates the brain and strengthens neural connections which will remain stimulated throughout a person’s life time. Check out some of the great organizations in Tulsa that help children and families improve their literacy.
Serve Tulsans Update
Hello, volunteers, community members, and advocates. After a year and a half hiatus the Serve Tulsans Newsletter is back. During this interlude, our community has dealt with challenges no one could have imagined and in the face of adversity Tulsans continue to find ways to make a difference in the lives of others. This type of determination helps make Tulsa a better place for everyone. It is clear Tulsans want to help their community, and the Serve Tulsans team is here to facilitate that ambition. We will continue to post volunteer opportunities as they arise and support the local organizations that do great work in this City. Each month this newsletter will feature organizations that match a specific theme. The theme for October will be Harvest!
National Volunteer Week During COVID - 19
First, THANK YOU!! The work that volunteers do in our community is invaluable and collectively serves as a cornerstone for the positive outcomes we see throughout our city. During these unprecedented times, it is hard to discern when, where and how to help those in need. Given that Tulsans are safer at home and should only leave for essential trips, we wanted to share ways that you can still support others.
Small acts of kindness can go a long way during these difficult times. Social distancing may make us feel far apart but, we are all in this together.
