Volunteers needed to read to children

Beginning with Books Center for Early Literacy is currently recruiting volunteers for the Everybody Wins! Power Lunch Program.

Volunteers spend one hour a week reading one-on-one with a child during the school lunch period.

Beginning with Books volunteers call it "the best hour of my day." The kids enjoy it because "it is fun and you get to read and have fun."

Volunteers are needed at Pittsburgh King on the Northside on Tuesday and Wednesday between 11:55 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. or 12:20 p.m. and 12:50 p.m. and on Thursday between 12:20 p.m. and 12:50 p.m. Readers come to Pittsburgh Weil in the Hill District on Tuesday and Wednesday from 12-12:30 p.m. Volunteers from the South Side can read at Pittsburgh Phillips on Thursdays between 11:40 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. or 12:20 p.m. and 12:50 p.m.
