Read Across America
In 2017, more than 700 books were collected during the month-long campaign which encourages kids of all ages from our neighborhoods to read and have fun doing it! Members from HPF and HPP employees visited five local schools to personally deliver the books.
The local partner schools include:
- Richard Wright Elementary
- Stonehurst Elementary
- Laboratory Charter School
- Delcroft School
- St. Thomas Aquinas Mission School
On March 2, 2017, HPF's President and Executive Director, Staci Scott, and several other employees went out to our partner schools to read to students in support of a nationwide reading celebration.
Now in its 20th year, Read Across America, created by the National Education Association, encourages children and teens to read through its events, partnerships and reading resources.
