Partners Resource Network & the PEN project: Annual State Conference

Posted on

Dear Community Partner:

Partners Resource Network’s PEN Project is a nonprofit agency with the mission to help empower parents of children and youth with disabilities in their role as parents, decision makers and advocates for their children. We do this by providing workshop trainings, information, referrals, and technical assistance at no cost to families.
PEN Project will be hosting its annual state conference, “Reaching All Families, One Child at a Time” for the families and professionals of El Paso and the surrounding rural areas. Our event will be taking place on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. This event will give parents, caregivers and professionals the opportunity to learn from our distinct speakers, gather information from various agencies within our community, as well as to network with other families while creating a community and developing lifelong friendships.
In order to make this all-day event a great one for the population we serve, we are seeking assistance from our fellow community partners. We are in much need of: a food (lunch) sponsor, sodas, fruit/bagels/granola bars, door prizes, goody bag items. All for approximately 150 people, that will include loved ones, speakers, vendors and volunteers for this event. Thank you kindly for your time and consideration! We look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,
Bonnie Perez
PEN Project Region 19 Coordinator

It’s like geocaching for bookworms…

BookCrossing.com

The website encourages people to READ, Register, and then Release their books “into the wild” and then track where they go and the lives they touch. Great concept… share your books and follow their progress. Best of all, it’s FREE.

A great concept for the classroom and the community.

This weekend I went on my first book hunt…I discovered Newman Park on Alabama, and then The Little Free Library inside the park. I gained a book and released three into the wild.  (Reference article for El Paso’s Little Free Libraries:  http://www.reforma.org/article_content.asp?edition=2&section=1&article=271 )

Help spread the word by forwarding this to your friends. Little Free Library
