"Dear Florida Retired Educators Assocation,


I wanted to reach out to you again to follow up about our volunteer opportunities here at the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County. We are especially in need of volunteers for our Book Buddy program right now. We are launching this initiative in mid-October, and all Book Buddy applications must be submitted to us by October 1st. Currently, we have reached 25% of our goal for number of volunteers recruited, so we are counting on your organization to help us reach 100%!


As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions!




Logan Landry

"Dear Florida Retired Educators Association"

Quoted from an eMail message dated 9/12/18:

"My name is Logan Landry and I am with the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County. I am reaching out to you because I feel that Florida Retired Educators Association’s goals line up with our mission, which is to “provide unified leadership, support and guidance to ensure that the children of our community have the opportunity to reap the benefits of developmentally appropriate, research-based school readiness and VPK programs, respecting the role of the parent as their child’s first teacher.”


We have many volunteer roles available across Orange County that we think members of Florida Retired Educators Association would really enjoy serving in, including reading with Voluntary Pre-K program students or being a pen pal with a child, buying them books that they request.


If your organization is interested, I would love to set up a time that I can come and meet with you to discuss these opportunities further.


Thank you so much for your time, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions!
