Review for Read Aloud West Virginia, Charleston, WV, USA
As a teacher who has been a champion of reading-aloud for over thirty years, I have a story to tell about Read-Aloud West Virginia (RAWV). I was born and raised in West Virgina yet I have lived in Massachusetts for decades. When my childhood friend died and asked that donations be made to RAWV I learned about this wonderful organization. Many places give books, but few to none instill a love of reading. RAWV trains volunteers to go to schools and read, among other things. I organized my preschool in Massachusetts, Groton Community School, to have a major fundraiser and book drive. We collected hundreds of dollars, and more importantly hundreds of books ~ quality hardcover books. I drove over 500 miles to make the delivery in person. Meeting the folks who run this incredible non-profit confirmed their quality, kindness, and good work. Reading-aloud to a school class of children was the icing on the cake for me. Since then, I have been an unofficial ambassador, as Read-Aloud West Virginia has changed my life. I now have an important mission! Thank you!
