Volunteer Spotlight

I love the Reading Buddies program because of the bond I make with the little buddy. We read, color, and play games together and I love coming in every week to settle in with a book. The improvement and joy towards reading the kids have developed is truly incredible and I'm so grateful to be able to work with them every year.
