Volunteers are integral to Reach Out and Read Minnesota.
Make a difference to children in your community.
Reach Out and Read's impact is magnified and enhanced by the work of thousands of volunteers nationwide. Reach Out and Read's dedicated volunteers can help support programs by donating books (both new and gently-used), improving literacy-rich waiting rooms, and reading aloud to children at select program sites.
Help Create a Literacy-Rich Waiting Room
Volunteers can help to improve the waiting room of a Reach Out and Read program site in their community. Consider donating:
- Gently-used books
- New bookcases or child-sized furniture (benches, tables, chairs) to help create a reading corner
- A story time rug
- Children's or parenting magazines
- Bulletin boards or other displays
We have ongoing needs for volunteers interested in our board subcommittees, including fundraising, marketing, special events, and public speaking. We’d be happy to talk with you about your specific skills and interests and how you can help.
