Employees from Kodak Columbus supported an exciting event across the Chattahoochee River in Alabama at the Mount Olive Primary School. Kodak was a co-sponsor for the Chattahoochee Valley Parent to Parent and Real Dads Read event, and donated funding to purchase books for the students.
Around 200 participants signed up for this special gathering. Students were joined by their fathers or adult role models for a night of fun and reading. The event was divided into three segments, which included a 10-minute reading stop, a station where students could make a “book buddy puppet” to practice reading to, and a food break with pizza and cookies. The Kodak Volunteers helped greet the guests, serve food and distribute books.
Sue Hall is the Site Director in Columbus and is a very active member of the local community. As she shared, “It was one of the best volunteer events that I’ve been a part of.”
Kodak first introduced it’s “Print for Good” program in 2016, which is focused on supporting literacy programs through book and school supply donations. The company also works to champion Kodak teams around the globe as they identify opportunities to volunteer in their local communities.
