SPCA LAUNCHES ‘TALE FOR TWO’ READING PROGRAM FOR 2019-2020 SCHOOL SEASON
September 4, 2019
By: SPCA Chief Communications Officer Gina Lattuca
The SPCA Serving Erie County will present its second season of Tale for Two for the 2019-2020 school year.
Tale For Two encourages children ages 6 – 15 to read aloud to adoptable animals at the SPCA. Animals benefit from the increased socialization and reduced stress levels, while children work on their literacy and reading skills, building their self-esteem and confidence.
This year’s reading sessions, available in groups of 6 sessions (program cost: $40 for 6 sessions; discounts on additional sessions) or 12 sessions (program cost: $70 for 12 sessions; discounts on additional sessions) are available on Tuesdays, 4:30 p.m.-7 p.m. at the SPCA’s 300 Harlem Rd., West Seneca shelter. Sibling discounts are available. Reading sessions are 30 minutes in length.
Children can bring their own reading materials, or make a selection from the SPCA’s library.
