The Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV, Department of Pediatrics, is seeking support for the worthy, community-focused Reach Out and Read program.
Reach Out and Read is a national nonprofit organization that champions the positive effects of reading daily and engaging in other language-rich activities with young children. Reading together promotes healthy brain development, furthers language acquisition, and helps families build meaningful bonds.
Your gift will help the Department of Pediatrics be able to give an age-and language-appropriate book to every child they see for a wellness visit. The Pediatrics Department cares for an underserved population in Las Vegas who cannot always afford even simple amenities, let alone books. Therefore, this program offers one of the only opportunities for their families to encourage reading, while also developing healthy relationships.
Your gift will make an impact both now and in the years to come. Thank you!
P.S. We'd love to reach our book funding goal by the end of Nevada Reading Week on MARCH 4th!
