As you know, USAgencies has partnered with Enterprise Car Sales to help bring awareness to the SMART (Start Making a Reader Today) program with our Smart Savings Car Sale & funds drive. For all those who’ve purchased a vehicle, or donated funds, THANK YOU so much. For those of you who haven’t yet, there’s still time! Our Smart Savings Car Sale & funds drive runs through October 31st.
But perhaps you’re not in the market for a new vehicle, or funds are tight… We wanted to shed light on another way to help SMART (Start Making a Reader Today)– by volunteering! If you can’t give monetarily, you may want to consider giving some of your time by becoming a much-needed volunteer reader.
What: Volunteer one hour a week to read with children in our community!
- Inspire a love of reading and books.
- Read one-on-one with PreK – third-graders.
- SMART students receive books for their home collection.
- Training and support provided!
Where: An elementary school or Head Start program near you in the Portland Metro Area
When: Programs run during school hours—October 2017 – May 2018.
- Time commitment varies—minimum one hour a week.
