Everybody Wins Is Back

Everybody Wins is a nonprofit organization on a mission to improve children's literacy and develop the reading skills of students in low-income elementary schools through shared reading experiences. The Power Lunch volunteers come from over 80 different corporations, government agencies, and community organizations. The volunteers read stories to and with our scholars during their lunch. It's a WIN WIN experience for everyone!

Philanthropy in the Classroom

Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Greater Atlanta and the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta came out to read to our scholars on Friday, September 28th. Their classroom visit included reading and sharing stories that taught about helping others. This will have a lasting impact on our scholars. We are so thankful for the partnership!
