As #AgentsOfChange, we will donate $10 on your behalf to REACH, an organization on the road to creating the Literacy Heroes of tomorrow! REACH (Reading Enriches All Children) promotes literacy for children who are at-risk and homeless throughout Coastal Virginia.
Today, 44 million adults in the U.S. do not have the literacy skills needed to read a simple story to a child. Unfortunately, half of children that start first grade from low-income communities are up to two years behind their peers. By promoting youth literacy/education, REACH continues to impact and support the literacy needs in Hampton Roads.
With its comprehensive programs and network, REACH programming now serves homeless and domestic violence family shelters in eleven different areas and 45 community partners/initiatives! Reading is an important foundation for success and their homeless and at-risk children beat the odds and work to achieve future academic achievement.
Getting involved has never been so simple, or Free!
