Help Kids in Need Love to Read

Let's match kids with volunteer reading mentors and make some memories!

Kristen's Fundraising Page A Project of Read to a Child

It's pretty simple: not every child is lucky enough to be read to. We want to change that, so we are bringing volunteer reading mentors into high-need schools to help spark a love of reading in struggling children.

80% of low-income children scored below proficient on the NAEP Reading test. Read to a Child's lunchtime reading program is addressing this issue head on by giving children the opportunity to be read to, one-on-one, each week. For many children, this is the only time in their week that they get to share a book with a caring adult and the impact is very real.

I am so proud to be a part of bringing the Lunchtime Reading Program to children in Boston and hope that you will support me and Read to a Child as we continue to teach children in need to learn, and love to read!
