Reading Is FUNdamental Pittsburgh
October 22, 2007

One of the greatest strengths of RIF Pittsburgh is the organization's commitment to individualized service. The populations being served are taken into consideration, and teachers working with the students daily are asked for input on the types of books ordered and distributed. In this way, schools with high minority populations are given books by African-American authors. By the same token, schools working to boost their reading scores are able to request non-fiction books. It is this acknowledgement of varying needs that enables RIF Pittsburgh to make a significant impact on the lives of children in collaboration with their partners!
