Read to Me
This program has been in place for the past five years. We have had area schools put together book drives, and have received over 13,000 books in donation, which we use to distribute to children learning how to read. Volunteers for this program are given specific reading locations in the Dayton area, where children are waiting for parents to complete applications, or tasks that do not include their children. Readers will sit with these children, share a book, and give the book to that child to take home. For many of our children, this is the first book they have ever owned. We also supply books on a consistent basis for the Montgomery County Children’s Services and various agencies who are targeted by a younger audience who can benefit by receiving reading material.
