Spread the Word Nevada is dedicated to advancing childhood literacy within low-income communities by changing lives one book at a time.
Spread the Word Nevada is the state's largest 501c3 literary nonprofit. Since it's humble beginnings in 2001, Spread the Word Nevada has distributed more than 5.7 million books; served over 632,000 kiddos and adopted 62 schools (60 in Las Vegas, 2 in Reno) which have our literacy programs in them.
This is a wonderful organization that is doing beautiful things for the children in the community. When I volunteered it felt very comforting and it was a peaceful place. I would very much recommend this. It is beautiful to think about the impact your actions could have to kids.

I volunteered back in July of 2014 with my church, St. Thomas More. We had a 5-day retreat called "Light" and we went to different organizations throughout the community and we volunteered for a couple of hours at each one. My first stop was Spread the Word and it was probably one of my favorite places to volunteer at. Just being able to clean those books and imagine a little kid's face when they saw they had a book to read just made me the happiest person in the world. I hope that others feel this way when they volunteer at Spread the Word.
