Reading is a blast! During the month of April and May, PDQ Gainesville is taking a page from Alachua County Library District’s (ACLD) book and hosting a Read Blast incentive program encouraging children ages 4 to 12 to read five books.
Our Gainesville gang teamed up with the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and served up grilled tenders at their recent fundraiser to support their philanthropy, The Josh and Friends Project (designed to help children in overcoming their fears of going into a hospital). More than 100 students, faculty, staff and their families attended to contribute funds to go towards the purchase of Josh puppies and “I’ll Be O.K.” books for countless children receiving treatment at Shands Children’s Hospital. Awesome!
