Success! 120 Books for We Are Readers Program!


We did it! You guys didn't need 5 days ys for our We Are Readers action last week. You donated 120 books in just 4 days!  A record 35 people clicked on the Take Action button to donate books for this great program and The Reading Connection folks couldn't be happier.  Executive Director of The Reading Connection, Courtney Kissell sent you this heartfelt message of thanks:

“A huge thanks to all the ACTion Alexandria members and the RunningBrooke for making The Reading Connection’s ACTion a huge success! Over 120 books were purchased and will go directly into the hands of the children in our summer reading program at ARHA. Thank you for your generous support. “

The RunningBroooke Fund's additional $500 match means children at the Ruby Tucker Center will have plenty of books to read this summer. 

We love it when our community exceeds our goals by working together, but the real winners are the Alexandria kids at the Ruby Tucker Family Center who get to read new books with their Reading Connection volunteers this summer.

If you want to do more, become a volunteer for The Reading Connection. Being a Read-Aloud volunteer is a great way to re-experience the joy of reading and pass it forward.

Thanks for being our ACTion Heroes!
