BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Sandra Pelham has devoted her life to her community and it shows. She created a program within her own community that helps children receive education and meals during the summer break.

She founded the “Community Read and Feed” program for those children that may not have many options in the summertime.

The Community Read and Feed Program is a summer program for children who arrive at a facility, read books and are provided a meal.

This program has become a bi-weekly event during the summertime, hosted at churches within Sandra’s community.

Read and feed program facilities include Destiny Life Church in Melbourne, Florida Avenue Church of Christ in Palm Bay and Greater Allen Chapel in Melbourne.

Not only do the children who attend have the opportunity to read and learn, but they are also surrounded by positive members of their community, such as local law enforcement, ministers, and community leaders.

These interactions are showing the children who to behave, how to present themselves, and how to be a positive member of their own community.

Helping her community is not something that is new for Sandra Pelham. Sandra has been making a meaningful impact on her community for years.

This impact resulted in the cities of Melbourne and Palm Bay honoring her by renaming a street “Pelham Street,” in 2012. Sandra is not only a positive influence on children and her community, but she is also a positive influence on each and every person she meets.
