EyeSeeMe: Bridging the Literacy Gap Through Representation

Category: Culture & Traditions


University City bookstore using representation and inclusivity to bridge the literacy gap.

Each February, Arrow sponsors a fundraising event celebrating Black History Month. This event aims to purchase books for schools in our local communities throughout the year. Additionally, a portion of the funds raised supports the ongoing work of the EyeSeeMe Foundation. Gail Smothers, a resident of Arrow Senior Living, recently starred in a story highlighting Arrow’s Story Corner and its collaboration with the EyeSeeMe Bookstore and Foundation.
