FRED program gets donation
The Fathers Reading Every Day (FRED) program of the Brainerd lakes area recieved a $1,000 donation from the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.
FRED promotes reading to children in their early years and gives away free books to families. FRED offers community events throughout the area, and also serves families experiencing incarceration at the Crow Wing County Jail. The Mille Lacs Band’s donation will be used to support literacy programming at the jail.
