The Magic of ONE - ONE Volunteer, ONE Child


The READ Association of Saginaw County is a
501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to help students improve their reading skills and discover the joys of reading.  Primary  goals are to motivate children to want to read and to enhance their confidence and self-esteem so that they can read at their respective grade level.  READ strives to instill in all children a love of reading and the value of becoming a lifelong reader.  A child's ability to read is important to their development to live as happy, successful and productive members of society.
