National Christ Child Society - Make a Difference: Read to Me

Community , Education ,
Chapters will be holding activities centered around their individual literacy programs as well as holding physical and virtual book drives. Some locations will be focusing on the literacy portion of their layettes (or baby “welcome” kits), all include a board book and Read to Me card. We will have Read-Ins, Story Times, Instruction on How to Read to a Child, as well as book give aways and donations.
Make A Difference
We plan to give out over 25,000 books and Read to Me cards in our layettes this year. We will also be giving under served children over 7,000 books to add to or begin their individual home library. MDDAY helps to publicize our mission and literacy goals and energize our volunteers.
Our Inspiration Studies have shown that children who are read to frequently have larger vocabularies and a head start on language skills and literacy. The average middle class child enters 1st grade with 1,700 hours of one-on-one picture book reading, 25 hours for low income children. CCS works to bridge that gap.
