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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call (305) 246-1193.
