March is reading month, and at Oakland Family Services we are inviting you to share in this month long celebration by coming in to our preschool classrooms and sharing your favorite books (bring your own, or choose from our bookshelves!).

Our preschools in Pontiac and Walled Lake serve children who have been deemed at risk of educational failure by the Michigan Department of Education. We rely on the dedicated support of our community members to open up worlds of possibility to them, and you can help by volunteering as a classroom reader!

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to as little as one hour up to as many hours as you would like to give! Come in during your lunch break, before or after work, or whenever your schedule allows. Our preschool is in session between the hours of 9-3:30, Monday-Thursday.

Contact Valerie Mercadante to get involved at vmercadante@ofsfamily.org or 248-858-7766 ext. 1218.
