Laurens, SC – Low and behold, the Laurens County First Steps pigs are about to break out! This Little Piggy brought the news to Laurens County First Steps that our pigs are going to be scattered about the Laurens Square during Squealin’ on the Square October 6-7. Fortunately, they all have special collars on them, that tell the lucky finder how to help the pig find their way back to our office.   Bring the lost little pink pig back to the Laurens County First Steps office, located at 1029 West Main Street, Monday – Thursday from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm.  In return, you will receive a children’s book that has been generously donated by the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.   Help us get our pigs back so they can go wee wee wee all the way home! We would hate for them to be taken to market!

About Laurens County First Steps

Laurens County First Steps is a local nonprofit that works collaboratively to ensure that all children start school ready to reach their highest potential. We achieve this goal by engaging families, caregivers, and community partners in high-quality evidence-based programs and services that improve early childhood development, from before birth through age five. We also serve as a connector and convener of all early childhood stakeholders in Laurens County.

About Toys for Tots Literacy Program

The Toys for Tots Literacy Program was established in 2008 as a year-round effort to offer our Nation’s most economically disadvantaged children the ability to compete academically and to succeed in life by providing them direct access to books and educational resources that enhance their ability to read and communicate effectively. Literacy forms the foundation of communication and impacts many areas of a child’s life such as learning, interacting with others, and their ability to work later in life. The Toys for Tots Literacy Program not only brings the joy of reading to less fortunate children, but also serves as an important tool in breaking the cycle of poverty.
