Oregon Reads Aloud: A SMART Read-A-Thon

May 16, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

There is nothing more familiar and comforting than reading aloud together. On May 16, the SMART Reading community invites you into our living rooms for the longest SMART Reading session ever, Oregon Reads Aloud: A SMART Read-A-Thon. Join us here and on YouTube Live, where SMART Reading supporters, community leaders, and volunteers will be reading popular children’s book titles from 10am to 10pm to celebrate and support Oregon’s youngest readers.

Now, more than ever, we know that providing books to our students is critical. Our goal is to raise $30,000 by the end of the day on May 16 to provide a book for every student in SMART Reading across the state.

Here’s how you can help: 

1. Tune in on May 16: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cSGJU4T7vc&feature=youtu.be

2. Make a gift to support young readers in your community! All gifts stay local, and you can select your regional team from the dropdown menu.

3. Spread the word — invite your friends and family to join in the read-a-thon.

Thank you for helping us ensure that SMART Reading can keep getting books into the hands of children who need them!
