Cary, NC – Read & Feed is one of our favorite Cary groups. They’re having a Back to School Bash on Friday September 16, 2011 to help raise money for the program.
Books. And Pizza.
It’s easy to drive around in Cary and think that all kids have the opportunity to develop a love of reading. But it is not so.
Many children, even in our town, don’t have enough to eat at home. They don’t have money for books. They may need some extra help just to read at grade level.
Read & Feed fills the gap. A big RV pulls up in the neighborhood. Kids sign up for a twelve week program. Adults and teens volunteer to help. Everybody gets a good meal and the kids go home with some books.
Read & Feed is not flashy or sophisticated. It’s very much a grassroots effort.
Back to School Bash
This year, R&F is holding a Back to School Bash, a gala fundraiser for the program.
They will be food, spirits and music by the Davis & Messina Band.
