It’s almost time for our annual Green Eggs & Ham Community Event. From March 7-11th, Our Team, as well as many Community volunteers, will serve Breakfast to around 48 Schools, which works out to about 7000 kids & parents!!
We started this program with the Vancouver School District Foundation back in 1996. The goal was simple--Get the parents into the schools to read with the kids. We just happened to be chatting about the needs of the schools around the time of the national program, Dr. Seuss' Read Across America.
The ‘Green Eggs’ breakfast became a natural for our goal, which also made it a little fun for the kids. Throw in a Dr. Seuss hat and a book for each child, a breakfast for everybody, the Cat in a Hat, some door prizes & lots of smiles, and you’ve got all the makings of a cool family get together.
And now, what started out as just a few schools, has spread throughout the Clark County community. All the food is prepared and sent out from Beaches Restaurant in Vancouver and the Firstenburg Center. We have 8 teams on the road at all times to make sure we get to the 7-10 Elementary schools each day, for 5 days in a row! We can’t thank the Schools enough for their participation in making it a success each & every year. And a special Thanks to the Beach Team, all our Community Volunteers, and Jan over at the VSD Foundation, for all their dedication.
So, it’s Sam I Am, Goo Goo G’joob, I am the Eggman….. checking out!
