The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Read-Aloud volunteers share the joy and love of reading with elementary school children in the West Contra Costa Unified School District. Students are selected to participate in Read-Aloud by their teachers. A Volunteer reader is paired with the same student every week for a one-to-on reading session. Volunteer readeras are supported by a Read-Aloud Coordinator at each site.
We serve five elementary schools in Richmond and San Pablo, CA. They are Coronado, Washington, Dover, Downer and Montalvin Manor. Twice a month, each student selects a new high quality gift book for their home library.
