WEGMAN'S HONORED AS RECIPIENT OF THE 2012 BUFFALO STATE EQUITY AND CAMPUS DIVERSITY PROGRAM AWARD
In appreciation for its support of the Global Book Hour, on June 29th, 2012, Wegmans Stores was presented the 2012 Buffalo State Equity and Campus Diversity Program Award. Hosted at Wegmans Amherst Street Store on Buffalo's West Side, the Global Book Hour promotes family literacy and global awareness through a weekly book hour that integrates geography, music, visual art, and healthy eating. Buffalo State teacher candidates provide an interactive read aloud, reading strategies and activities for local families, and each child leaves with a copy of the multi-cultural book at the end of each session.
This collaboration could not happen without the generous support of Wegmans staff; for their time in transforming the Market Cafe into an enchanting reading room and their healthy snacks which nourish the children each week (and often the teacher candidates). We are so thankful and appreciative of their efforts.
