THANK YOU to our donors, friends, volunteers, students and staff members!
Over 2,000 donors and participants took a break on May 7 to recharge and read a book, with many also taking the time to donate during our 2021 Reading for Life Virtual Fundraiser. Including the $10,000 matching donation gift made through EPCOR’s Heart + Soul Fund, $35,000 was raised and we are hoping for additional donations to arrive by the end of May. These very kind contributions will support full-day Kindergarten programming and help level the educational playing field for children who come to the classroom at a disadvantage.
Whether participants read a book and posted about it on social media, donated to our Foundation or both, Reading for Life — which raises funds and awareness about the importance of early learning intervention — is our most important event of this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event was held virtually for the second year in a row. Check out some of the interesting social media posts shared on our Heartwarming Stories page.
