THE STORY:

Be a hero to a child in need!  Join the fight against illiteracy in Detroit.

In 2015, the National Assessment of Educational Progress revealed that only 27% of fourth grade students in the Detroit Public School District tested at or above basic levels in reading.  And despite the hard work of teachers in schools across Detroit, students are still struggling with literacy and are demanding support…That's where you come in.

If we raise the most funds by October 19th, Read to a Child - Detroit will win $25,000 to provide direct literacy support to hundreds of children in Detroit.

Research shows that reading aloud to children is the single most important activity for eventual success in reading, a key factor for success in school, work, and life. When an adult reads aloud to a child, both parties have a joyful, rewarding experience that instills a love of reading, improves literacy skills, and enhances a child’s self-confidence. Last year, support from friends and family like you allowed Read to a Child’s Lunchtime Reading Program to grow at an unprecedented pace, supporting over 1200 students in Detroit, Boston, South Florida, Connecticut and Los Angeles.  

Despite our measurable successes, there are still hundreds of children who struggle with reading across Metro Detroit and we know that we have more work to do.

Please give now and help Read to a Child win $25,000 to mentor children and improve literacy in Detroit
