Second Saturday

SecondSatBannerThe mission of the Second Saturday Program is to help mothers and their children by providing a regular meeting place where they can participate in social and educational activities with an emphasis on reading. As the name implies, the program meets on the second Saturday of the month, from September through May, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The Second Saturday program encourages literacy. Members read to children at each meeting, followed by an activity or craft project. Each family is given a book to take home. A variety of educational and recreational programs for mothers are provided, including stress reduction exercises, a craft project, and journaling. A volunteer pediatrician or nurse we call "The Doctor is In" answers questions for mothers.

Lunch is provided for all in attendance. Volunteers from area schools assist at Second Saturday by planning craft projects, donating snacks and lunch items, and as student volunteers. For more information about volunteering at Second Saturday, please contact us at 414-540-0489.
