Gift of Reading Program

Bringing the joy of reading to children in our elementary schools

Helpful Hands, Inc. Gift of Reading Program is provided to promote early childhood literacy in elementary schools in our local community. Reading is a strong proficiency and predictor of high school graduation. Children who cannot read at grade level by third grade are four times less likely to graduate high school by age 19 than their reading proficient classmates. We currently fund the gift of reading program in K – 2nd grade.
