I had the pleasure of being able to set up a book drive at my company with the help of Read and Feed. They have great volunteers and staff that are passionate about making a difference in the children's lives. They are a great local nonprofit doing amazing things in the Raleigh-Durham area.

The impact Read and Feed has on the local community is unbelievable. The kids are a joy and so happy to be there. The tutors are dedicated and have the biggest hearts. The ladies in the office are incredible and it's an honor to be involved in such a wonderful non-profit that is truly making our community a better place.

I'm in education, in my early 40's and have always volunteered since my late teens. This is by far the most rewarding volunteer experience to date. I've been volunteering for about 4 yrs and 2+ years with one of my daughters; it's a great way to bond with each other as we serve the kids. We LOVE the Read and Feed Program!!!
