Brantford Blast Supports Strong Start to Reading

The Brantford Blast hockey organization supported Strong Start to Reading by inviting children enrolled in the Strong Start program and the volunteers who work with them to be their guests at their home opener on Friday, October 27th. Strong Start is a registered Canadian children’s charity that partners with schools and school boards to provide young children with a “literacy boost”.
