Have you ever thought of collaborating with a national Key Event, and leveraging it for fundraising? Today is Read Across America day. Grab a Dr. Seuss book and have fun while raising money for Tacoma Public Schools! This is a fundraiser for the Scholars and Champions Association, a nonprofit raising money for Tacoma Public Schools. SACA fundraisers occur monthly.
BJ’s is also getting in on the Key Event idea… The National Education’s Association’s (NEA) Read Across America– Building a Nation of Readers is an annual reading motivation and awareness program. Originally created as a one-day event held on Dr. Seuss’ birthday, March 2, to celebrate the joy of reading, the NEA’s Read Across America has grown into a nationwide initiative that promotes reading every day of the year.
Each February, BJ’s celebrates this national event in each of the communities we serve by sponsoring a month-long reading incentive program at its adopted elementary schools.
