Chairman Robert P. Lamprey of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has announced a $2,500 grant to Read to a Child in support of a lunchtime reading program for students in grades 1 through 4 at the Woodrow Wilson and Brophy elementary schools in Framingham.
The program currently provides one-on-one weekly reading time for 104 high-risk children who are paired with volunteer mentors from community corporate partners. Read to a Child’s mission is to increase literacy skills and improve social, emotional, and academic outcomes.
“The Foundation award to Read to a Child will help ensure the sustainability of this valuable literacy program,” said Lamprey. “We are convinced that the children it serves will have a better chance of success in life, starting at a very early age.”
