BEAVER, WV (WVNS) – Every summer, Energy Express holds a reading program for children in the area. But this year, the literacy program is mostly virtual because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Janet Smith, a Raleigh County site supervisor, said they still want to keep kids active this summer, so they are holding pop-up events in Raleigh County.
“We are doing art activities and writing activities and we are reading books and it is a wonderful experience for us and them,” Smith said.
Energy Express will continue to hold pop-up shops every Thursday from noon to 1:30 p.m. throughout the month of July.
The next pop-up literacy event will be at at the YMCA soccer complex.
