By collaborating with three other regional Rotary Clubs, we were able to maximize the grant we received from the District to help support literacy among youth in area shelters.  (L – R) Norfolk Rotary President Bryce Burton, Reading Enriches All Children (REACH) Executive Director Lori Miller, Town Center Rotary President Pat Edwards, Portsmouth Rotary President Calvin Molen, and Virginia Beach Rotary President Amy Kurtz. The four Rotary clubs joined together to apply for a District Grant for the REACH program and received the $20,000 award! The photo shows Lori's reaction to being presented with this great news. With the funds, she will be able to purchase many new books for her reading programs, as well as update some book shelves, purchase bags for the children with the Rotary logo, and other items to support the program which encourages the literacy needs of at-risk and homeless children in our community.
