Spread the Word Nevada.

To Kill a Mockingbird. Little Women. The Giving Tree. Harry Potter. These are just a few of the books that have added life, joy and memories to my days. I even started to collect books for my boys long before they were born. These days I share the joy of reading with my precious grandson who has a life in which he is surrounded by word-filled treasures. At four, he already has his favorites that we read over and over again.

It is hard to imagine a life without books, but sadly many children right here in Clark County do not have regular, easy access to books.  

Spread the Word Nevada is ded­i­cated to advanc­ing early child­hood lit­er­acy by plac­ing books into the hands and homes of chil­dren within South­ern Nevada’s at-risk, low income com­mu­ni­ties. Through com­mu­nity col­lab­o­ra­tion, men­tor­ship and fam­ily part­ner­ship pro­grams, Spread the Word Nevada fos­ters read­ing and lan­guage devel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties ulti­mately lead­ing to brighter aca­d­e­mic and eco­nomic futures for these chil­dren. They are ded­i­cated to chang­ing the lives of our at-risk chil­dren, one book at a time.

This morning we will meet at the Henderson location to clean the used books that are donated and then given to children to help them build home libraries.  Please come dressed comfortably, with closed toe shoes and plenty of  elbow grease. 

As an added gift from AOK, I am asking that each volunteer bring along a new or gently used book to help the program build their supplies. (Of course, this is optional).

I am very excited about this new opportunity and hope to build a strong. lasting partnership with them. 

Please RSVP with integrity and as always, if you have any questions, feel free to be in touch.

    So we just go there in the morning and say we're a volunteer? (First timer here!)

    • Mary-Beth

      Actually, Willa, it will be AOK's first time volunteering at Spread the Word as well. I have posted the information that their staff passed along to me, so yes, please park and enter through the back. The door will be open, and I am sure that you will meet other volunteers. Just identify yourself as an AOK volunteer when you arrive. I look forward to meeting you.

      Sorry to hear that you can't be a part of this event, Amanda. I am always looking for weekday events. We will have a Clean the World event coming up again at the end of September, and that will be on a Thursday.
