Blog: Back to School Special UpdateBy natalie on Mon October 08th, 2018 Permalink
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Back to School Special, we were able to raise enough money to support a student in the SMART - Start Making A Reader Today program for an entire year! Together, we’re positively impacting literacy outcomes in Oregon! We are so thankful that we get to partner together with our local community to help increase literacy for Oregon kids!
Founded in 1992, SMART’s proven model engages community volunteers across Oregon to read one-on-one with Pre-K through third-grade children for one hour per week during the school year. SMART volunteers model reading aloud and ignite a love of reading in children, helping build reading skills, motivation and self-confidence. SMART students also receive up to 14 new books to take home and keep each year.
You can read more about SMART and ways to get involved here.
