SAND School Celebrates “Read to a Child” Volunteer Appreciation Week.

S.A.N.D. Elementary School Vice-Principal Courtney McCoy (center) joins 4th grader Jadiel T. and his Read to a Child volunteer Tom Baxter of the Yard Goats to celebrate Read to a Child Volunteer Appreciation Week.

Read to a Child® offers a program designed to make volunteering easy: the Lunchtime Reading Program. One day a week, it brings adult volunteers into elementary schools for read-aloud sessions. To establish consistency but allow schedule flexibility, volunteers can partner with a coworker to read to their student on alternate weeks.

Read to a Child supports volunteers by providing a diverse collection of recommended, age-appropriate books to choose from. Part of the reading experience is choosing a book together, and the organization assists its volunteers in finding a favorite story to share and discuss.
