Power lunch Week is rapidly approaching! Mark your calendars for October 24-30 for Everybody Wins! Iowa’s second annual Power Lunch Week! During Power Lunch Week, Everybody Wins! Iowa will recognize our volunteers for their outstanding work, as well as pass out 2,000 books to children in need in Des Moines area schools. Power Lunch is Everybody Wins! Iowa's signature program. Through Power Lunch, volunteer reading mentors visit an elementary-age student for one lunch hour each week. The students and volunteer reading mentors spend their time talking, reading aloud one-to-one, eating lunch, and instilling positive attitudes about reading. Children build academic confidence and enhance their overall self-esteem. Volunteers also serve as role models and enhance students' self-esteem.
Join our literacy efforts, in honor of Power Lunch Week, by volunteering with Everybody Wins! Iowa!
