Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation Grant Recipient Recognition
April 21, 2012
Kids Need to Read, along with other 2011 grant recipients, was recently treated to a special reception and on-field recognition at Chase Field by Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation. Our organization earned a $5,000 grant from the foundation at the end of 2011 and is using the funds to support Reading Revolution, a program aimed at increasing literacy rates and decreasing dropout rates among Phoenix area middle school students. Kids Need to Read has partnered with Arizona State University and ASU Preparatory Academy to produce this ongoing program, and is dependent upon the support of generous funding partners such as Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.
