Lions and Reading Is Fundamental
Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) is the largest children’s literacy nonprofit in the United States, and is one of the organizations that Lions Clubs International has partnered with as a part of the Reading Action Program.
The Sterling Lions Club in Colorado, USA recently organized a RIF program that provides books to children and parents of low-income families – many with single mothers who have limited English skills. The program, called Head Start, includes 83 children between the ages of 3 and 5. The Lions also plan to offer a class for parents on helping their kids with reading at home.
Does your Lions club provide community services for children and parents that promote literacy?
