Reading Hour is looking for volunteers for Spring of 2018!
Reading Hour is a program in which adult volunteers spend one hour of their time each week, for a series of eight weeks, reading to and doing literacy activities with pre-school aged children who need extra literacy support. This program helps children who may not be read to at home, or who may need extra exposure to books and reading before being ready to enter Kindergarten. Each volunteer receives support from a program coordinator who provides them with training and any help they may need throughout the program's duration. This is a fulfilling volunteer opportunity that provides a much needed service to childcare centers, and children throughout our community! To volunteer, please contact Anna Harbom at 540-639-9313 or at AHabom@nrvrc.org, or go to SmartBeginningsNRV.org to download an application!
A Blanket Day is set for February 17 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Grove United Methodist Church. For more information, call Penny Sweet at 230-6209.
