GLOVERSVILLE, NY – Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home’s Birthing Center received a donation from the Johnstown Teachers’ Association (JTA), Thursday, May 12. Stephanie Di Visconti, member of the JTA, coordinated the donation with Nathan Littauer Birthing Center Manager Maureen Mosher. “We want our students to be amazing readers, and it starts at the infant stages,” said Di Visconti. “We were completing our annual drive, and we thought this would be an amazing way to support our community’s hospital.”
The JTA typically donates to Nathan Littauer’s Birthing Center every year. Amongst the 128 bags made from the JTA for the Nathan Littauer Birthing Center, were works of literature for parents to read to their infants, as well as helpful tips to encourage reading to them; to help promote the development of the necessary skill.
“We thank the JTA for their efforts in empowering parents to promote early literacy experience for their babies,” says Mosher. “We’re so appreciative of the JTA’s yearly donation of ‘Books for Babies.’ Our mothers are also very thankful to receive them. This is a perfect example of our community giving back and the investment in our future generations.”
