Reviews for Rolling Readers Usa Inc.
Rolling Readers is an organization that operates with confidence about the importance of its work and with the belief that its cause is worthy of attention of contributions from individuals at all levels. I recently attended an organization reception attended by Scott Horsley, White House correspondent for NPR, who was also a Rolling Reader. Also in attendance were a number of local civic leaders and major donors in the community.
