The Children's Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia is our October member of the month. The Reading Foundation's vision is that every child learns to read early and well, thereby reaching his or her full potential in school and life. Their mission involves encouraging and educating families, supporting schools and facilitating community involvement.
They provide over 12,000 books annually to students, families and schools in our community and facilitate programs such as Books for Babies, Ready! For Kindergarten, READ up and Team Read.
The Foundation is a great partner with the Regional Chamber and many of our involved members are also some of their board and dedicated volunteers.
