Power of the Purse Event to Support Early Childhood Literacy Programs
Power of the Purse is an exciting event that brings together women from throughout southwest Minnesota with a commitment to our youngest learners. All money raised will be used for local initiatives that help effectively prepare young children in our area for kindergarten. Proceeds from this event support efforts such as Imagination Library, Wild About Kindergarten Bags, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, Born Learning Trails, Little Red Bookshelf and more!
