Reading Is Fundamental asks for public support
| Dec 07, 2010
As the House of Representatives prepares to vote on the 2011 budget, perhaps as early as Thursday, Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) is asking legislators to include RIF’s grant in the bill. Without the grant, RIF officials say, the organization will no longer be able to serve the 4.4 million children currently receiving free books and other literacy materials. RIF is asking supporters to send a reminder to members of Congress asking for their support. More information is available at the RIF website
. RIF is a nonprofit that aims to motivate young children to read by working with them, their parents, and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life. RIF's priority is reaching underserved children from birth to age 8.
