Please Join Read to a Child in Raising $100,000 to
Help Kids in Need Love to Read!
Astoundingly, 80% of 4th graders from low-income families are not proficient in reading.
Read to a Child inspires caring adults to read aloud to children and to help create better opportunities for the future. Read to a Child’s volunteer reading mentors give their student partners the time, confidence and tools to reverse the cycle of illiteracy.
Join our campaign! Read to a Child is raising $100,000 in May, 2015 that will go to provide 6,000 additional reading sessions to children in need during the upcoming school year!
When: The campaign will run from May 1- May 31, 2015
Goal: $100,000 in one month!
