A child in our Youth Readers program, where high schoolers volunteer to read to preschoolers, told her mother about her day, “I did reading today!” Proud and excited she shared, “I did reading with my older friends.”
From reading together, friendships are being formed. Relationships are strengthening between children and parents, within extended families, and throughout the community providing a sense of value and happiness. These experiences and your support inspire us.
We hope you will join us in reading to a loved one today and continue to help us extend this critical gift to those in need within our community. From one of our grandparent participants, “…
it is a memorable and lasting gift that is irreplaceable!"
Your efforts make an immeasurable impact in the hearts and minds of all who participate!
