Read-A-Thon (2023)

In honor of National Reading Month. This March, we're hosting a read-a-thon. Our theme is, “Reading is fun”. We are asking families to commit to reading a minimum of 5 books. 

 According to the Ed-Data.com, 63.97% of the children and youth that live in East Palo Alto/East Menlo Park do not meet reading level. Not only did Covid-19 increase isolation, but many youth didn't grasp fundamental concepts widening the gap in reading. 

To rectify this we are looking at providing an 8-week intensive reading program, three days a week for not just Lauren's House but 10 spaces for community partners like Girls Club, Ravenswood City School District, and other community partners. 

Will you consider giving today.
