Please Help Kids in Need Love to Read!
You can create lasting memories for students while also enhancing their literacy skills by supporting Read to a Child's Lunchtime Reading program. Read to a Child is a national literacy and mentoring non-profit that inspires caring adults to read aloud regularly to underprivileged children to create better opportunities for the childs future. We have proudly partnered with schools throughout Metro Detroit for over 6 years and through those partnerships, over 90% of our program participants have experienced significant improvement in their overall reading ability, vocabulary, listening comprehension and exposure to new ideas.
Our Lunchtime Reading Program is offered at no-cost to our school partners and is 100% donor funded.
Please help us further our work and mission to foster a love of reading, improve literacy skills and empower underserved children by inspiring adults to read to them regularly.
