September is recognized as National Literacy Month, where young people are encouraged to go to the library and pick-up a good book. Since that may look a little different with safety precautions during the pandemic, we are donating to organizations that are bridging the gap for students who might not have easy access to the resources they need to learn from home. As families have incorporated at-home learning over the last several months, both of these organizations continue to support children and families across Madison County.
The Huntsville-Madison County Library's demand for children's materials has increased since the beginning of the global pandemic in March. The donation from Dynetics will help purchase some of these materials, such as Accelerated Reader books and storybooks.
The Boys and Girls Club of North Alabama has recently introduced Club Academy, an in-person classroom program at local clubs for those students who need all-day learning options, along with their after-school program. The Dynetics gift will help support this newly founded program and any other needs the clubs have.
"At Dynetics, we love being able to give back to non-profits that are pouring into our community," said Dynetics Group President, Dave King. "It means a lot that both of these organizations are going above and beyond to nurture Madison County's future generations."
This donation was made possible through Dynetics Does, our community outreach initiative, which allows us to make our communities better today and every day, while improving the quality of life for our employees and their families.
