MONETARY DONATIONS BEING COLLECTED
Reach Out and Read, a national, evidence-based early literacy initiative, gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.
Primary care doctors and nurse practitioners incorporate Reach Out and Read's model into regular pediatric checkups by advising parents about the importance of reading aloud and giving brand-new, culturally and age-appropriate books to children 6 months through 5 years of age. This year Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's (CHOP) Reach Out and Read pediatricians and nurse practitioners will need to provide brand-new books to 27,000 young children in need. CHOP's Reach Out and Read program is implemented at ten CHOP Care Network primary care practices - four located in West Philadelphia, one in South Philadelphia, four in the suburbs of Pennsylvania (Coatesville, Kennett Square, Norristown and West Chester), and one in Burlington Township, New Jersey.
The Philadelphia Estate Planning Council will be collecting monetary donations at this year's holiday party to benefit Reach Out and Read. Cash and checks will be accepted. Please make the check payable to The Children's Hospital Foundation and on the check memo line please write: "Reach Out and Read."
