On December 15, 2014, the EdmonsonVoice.com reported to you that Community Action of Southern Kentucky’s Head Start in Edmonson County was officially adopted into United Way’s Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Program in memory of Stoy E. Browning who passed away May 19, 2014.
Made possible by a generous memorial contribution, all children attending Community Action of Southern Kentucky’s Head Start in Edmonson County at the time were enrolled into United Way’s Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Program. Upon enrollment into the program, each child began to receive one book per month mailed directly to their home until they reach the age of 5, at no cost to the families.
As of September 2015, 13 additional children have enrolled into the Head Start Program in Edmonson County. Now, as a result of an additional memorial contribution in honor of Stoy E. Browning, the Browning family has made it possible for these 13 children to also be enrolled into the Imagination Library.
Family spokesperson Craig E. Browning released this statement: “Every child deserves the opportunity and tools to be successful in life. Giving back through a contribution to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Program is a great way to help a child become kindergarten ready. A child that enters kindergarten ready to learn is much more likely to succeed throughout their academic career – and life. Sponsoring a child is a very modest investment. We encourage others to contact United Way of Southern Kentucky and find out more about how you can help.”
