WOLF Tanner ReadER Drive
The WOLF Internet Radio is in the final weeks of its fall children's book drive benefiting the Tanner ReadER program. The Tanner ReadER program is designed to give a book to every child who visits Tanner Medical's Villa Rica or Carrollton emergency rooms. This helps make a child's ER experience more positive and curb the nearly 17 percent illiteracy rate in Georgia. Please consider donating a book by December 1 in the donation box outside The WOLF Office–G7 on the ground floor of Anthropology or the Z6 Dining Hall.
