"Thirsty for Words"

Last updated 4 years ago

Community Bank of Florida is excited to support Sweet Vine Outreach and Prevention Services to fundraise towards their goal of hosting a “Thirsty for Words” event. Sweet Vine’s founder, Tonnette Collier, explains, “Thirst for Words is a part of a literacy crusade our organization has started. The level of attendance and test scores in our area has spurred us to take action.” Their goal is to hold a 2 day celebration including a book fair with free books for children of every age and live readings by members of the community. Sweet Vine is currently running a summer camp and plans to donate book supplies to students on August 31st. If you would like to assist Sweet Vine or would like further information, contact Tonnette at or call (305) 246-1193.
