In this episode, Pat Tidwell from Coweta Ferst Readers joins T.M. "Mike" Brown to talk about the organization. Since 2004, Coweta Ferst has sent more than 300,000 books to children in Coweta County. This is made possible by the generosity of the foundation's donors.
The organization will once again be hosting its main fundraiser, the Lewis Grizzard and Catfish Memorial Bike Ride, this year on Oct. 1.
Riders may register to ride 12, 25, 48 or 66 miles through rural Coweta County. The ride begins and ends at the Moreland Mill and entry fee is $36 – the cost of supplying a year’s worth of books for one child.
