We are looking for book buddies to read to some of our seniors in the community. You can be solo, a group or a family. We need as many volunteers as we can get for this activity. We will pick a facility 2x a month and go out and read to a senior. We can provide books or if you have some to bring out that's fine as well. Please contact us today!
