Authorization for the County Administrator to execute Agreement For Charitable Services between The Patterson Foundation and Manatee County.
On April 4, 2017, the Board adopted the "Reach Out and Read Month" Proclamation. Among others, The Patterson Foundation was recognized as providing funding through their Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading. The campaign mission is to bridge the gap between school years, reducing the decline in reading levels by students over the summer.
On June 20, 2017, the Board authorized execution of the Agreement for Charitable Services between The Patterson Foundation and Manatee County. The agreement presented an opportunity for the Parks & Natural Resources Department's summer camp program to participate in the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading.
Now that the Manatee County Summer Blast Camp programs have been officially recognized as a participating program for 2017, The Patterson Foundation has requested our participation again for the 2018 Summer Camp Program.
