Read to Me Day is an annual event in which our employees volunteer to read to students at schools throughout the company’s West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee communities. Each year, the program reaches about 20,000 elementary students.
Since 2001, we’ve donated nearly 7,000 books to school libraries and read aloud to more than 280,000 students.
In 2021, in celebration of the 20th year of the program, we moved Read to Me Day to YouTube. Children and educators are now able to access the program online at their convenience and enjoy the Read Aloud book selections from the past 20 years.
