Credit Unions around the area are trying to make a difference for young children by getting them interested in reading. “Reach out and Read’ is a national program where children who go into doctors for a well baby check up receive a new book for themselves. Parents are encouraged to read to their children each day for 15-20 minutes and it will create a lifetime love of reading for children. Your help is needed to drop off new books for children age birth to 5 years at any of the credit unions in the area between now and August 31st. If you don’t have time to shop you can make a cash donation at any of the credit unions.
