Read To Me Foundation is honored and proud to be selected by the UNLV Community Concert Band as their designated charity for the April 20, 2024 Concert Event "PERFECT HARMONY"
Thank you to the guests who have or will purchase tickets to support both the UNLV Community Concert Band and the READ TO ME FOUNDATION.
Read To Me Foundation has joined the fight to stop illiteracy by supporting and distributing bilingual children books to literacy charities in need of bilingual books.
The growing recognition that too many children read poorly or scarcely at all has prompted an increase in privately funded literacy programs.
Please join us in the fight for Literacy!
