Gifts Giving Back
9 December 2019
We were in the studio today for a conversation with Ashley Miller and Lani Pendleton, founders of Gifts Giving Back.
Inspired by a third grade teacher encouraging her students to read and communicate more, Gifts Giving Back fosters a love for reading, one book at a time. With a special emphasis on Title 1 schools in Winchester City, Gifts Giving Back is a book gifting program that delivers high quality books to students to develop the critical early foundation and skills which young children need to be successful in life.
We talked about how the program began, how it works, the role of sponsors and the community as a whole, and we discussed the long-term impact reading for fun will have on these third grade students.
