We like to inspire smiles here at Project READ...Here are a few of our favorites:


  • The proud, emotional smile of Tycelia, who earned her high school diploma after four years of study (at age 59!).
  • The contagious smile of 3rd grader Dashia, who was thrilled to receive a free book from Project READ and begged the staff member to read it with her (we obliged, of course).
  • The expectant smile of Michael, who anticipates the arrival of his tutor.


Will you help us inspire more smiles?  Your support will allow Project READ to recruit and train literacy tutors, match adults with free programs and give away thousands of books every year.




Thank you for your support!
