Reach Out and Read is a nationwide nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness, and they are working on an exciting project this summer.
Reach Out and Read has launched the Summer of a Million Books campaign, a new initiative in partnership with United We Serve: Let’s Read. Let’s Move. The campaign aims to give a brand-new, age-appropriate book to one million at-risk children before Labor Day. To invigorate the campaign, Reach Out and Read asks supporters to donate a book or sponsor a child online through Reach Out and Read’s Virtual Book Drive and/or to organize a book drive in their community. Also, throughout the summer, don’t forget to read daily (twenty minutes will do!) to the children who touch your lives.
Early literacy is so important. Please consider reaching out to support at-risk children develop a love of books and reading skills necessary to succeed in life and school.
