A Letter of Thanksgiving
November 24, 2016
As the year comes to a close and the holiday season approaches, we are reminded of the things in our lives that bring us significant meaning and joy. For so many, this includes Project READ of Redwood City.
As a community and as individuals, our lives are richer as the result of this extraordinary program that unites us together through the shared mission of literacy.
For over 29 years, Project READ has been changing lives by providing literacy services to our most in need adults, youth and families.
Project READ Impact:
serve over 700 learners monthly, actively working together with trained volunteer tutors
increase learners’ reading skills an average of 3 grade levels annually
provide individual and group lesson plans customized to the learners’ needs

As we enter the traditional season of giving, we hope you will consider adding Project READ to your gift list.
