Family Literacy Program needs your help!

n/a



Family Literacy Program needs your help! Mano al Hermano, a non-profit organization serving the local Hispanic community, is looking for volunteers to provide tutoring to K-5 children in their homes.

Volunteers will “adopt a family” and visit the home weekly to assist with homework and basic literacy skills. Giving as little as one hour a week will make a huge difference in the lives of these families and will present a unique cultural exchange opportunity. You do not need to speak Spanish and we will provide training and ongoing support.

Please contact Kay Minis at 252-305-2956 or visit our website at www.manoalhermano.org to complete a volunteer application.


Cancer Survivor, Sadie - :30 and :60

n/a


One such cancer survivor is Sadie, a college student and race car driver.

Sadie is in remission from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) because of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s efforts to fund research leading to lifesaving treatments. Sadie is living proof that advances in treatment are making the chances of surviving much better than they used to be. In 1964, the survival rate for children with leukemia (ALL) was 3%. Today, it’s 90%.
Someday there’ll be a cure. Someday we won’t lose the people we love. Someday. It’s the word we use whenever we talk about cancer. But someday is not that far off. In fact, for many people, someday is today.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) researchers are accelerating therapies that are saving lives today. LLS has invested nearly $1 billion to accelerate cancer treatments once thought impossible. Partnering with universities, medical centers and pharmaceutical and biotech companies, LLS is leading the way to advances and cures by funding promising research and helping to ensure that patients have access to treatments.
Sadie is featured in Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s new :30 and :60 “survivor” PSA campaigns – see links below - these moving spots reveal how cancer survivors are thriving and how there is hope. Please help us share this important message and educate your viewers by airing these PSAs as often as possible. To request a digital file or alternate tape format or alternate delivery method (ftp, Extreme Reach, etc.), please reply to me or contact our team at psa@boombroadcast.com or at (609) 748-7411.

Master Plan Update-Phone Survey

Craven County Recreation and Parks


Craven County Recreation and Parks is now in the process of updating our Comprehensive Recreation and Parks Master Plan.

A grant from the Region 10 Community Transformation Grant Project (CTG) will enable the county to work with East Carolina University in updating the plan. Craven County was awarded a grant through the “active living” category of the CTG Project. A key component of this project will be a statistically-based telephone survey designed to determine parks and recreation needs and levels of interest and participation of citizens across the county. Coordinated by the Center for Survey Research at East Carolina University, specially trained interviewers will call randomly selected citizens beginning in mid-April.

Community members are encouraged to share approximately 12-15 minutes of their time in helping Craven County identify the key role parks and recreation pay in the health and well-being of the community, as well as gauge community support. Results of the survey will also provide the framework and priorities for the County’s future recreation programs and facilities.



For more information, please call Eddie Games at Craven County Recreation & Parks at (252) 636-6606 ext. 1.
