Birmingham Reads: Can You Spare a Lunch Hour

Birmingham Reads: An Opportunity to Give Back

On April 18, 2013, the Birmingham Reads program offers an opportunity for volunteers to read to Birmingham’s school aged children in the classroom.  I’ll be reading to children at Glen Iris Elementary and I’m looking forwards to it.

Not only will volunteers read to the children, but they’ll leave them with the gift of books.  It is such a worthwhile effort.  I saw the call a few months ago and I wasted no time volunteering and on top of that, I recruited some of my family and friends to do the same.  Like me, they didn’t hesitate to answer the call.

It only takes on hour of your time.  Can you spare an hour to read to a child.  it’s the equivalent of a lunch hour (with permission for commute time from your supervisor).

Birmingham Reads is sponsored by Better Basics.  Contact Kathleen Drake for more info and to volunteer or click the link to register.
