Claremont Kiwanis seeks volunteers for ‘Read Me’ program
The Kiwanis Club of Claremont invites community members who have one hour of time to spare on a weekly basis, to sign up and become a reader for the club’s “Read Me” program. This program brings volunteer readers into Claremont preschool classrooms, to read from age-appropriate and approved books to young students, in order to encourage good reading habits from an early age.
Working closely with the school district’s Early Childhood Development staff, this program was launched more than 14 years ago. More than 10,000 books are donated annually by the Kiwanis Club. Each child in the reading group receives their own copy of the book being read to take home and add to their own home library.
Co-chairmen for the 2015-16 school year are Jerry Feingold and Alan Robb, who will assist new volunteers with their assignments. For information, call (909) 624-6395 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
