Caritas Reads! PRogram
To promote literacy throughout our communities, Caritas offers these programs:
Summer Reading Program
This program encourages our elementary to high school-aged residents to read during the summer break and lessen the chances of a “summer slide”. Each reader can choose their own book and upon finishing it and submitting a book report, they can select more books until the end of summer. Since beginning in 2013, we have distributed over 8,800 books to residents.
Read Across America Day
The National Education Association's (NEA) Read Across America Day celebrates the joy of reading and the author, artist, and poet - Dr. Seuss! Caritas participates in this special day by hosting reading circles, distributing books, playing games, and making crafts.
