The star of Juno and Alias spent Tuesday at the capitol in Frankfort push for Save the Children's early childhood programs to be included in the state's budget.
Mark Shriver, the president of the Save the Children Advocacy Network joined Garner in urging legislators to continue funding Save the Children literacy programs through an annual $941,400 state budget appropriation.
