Kappa and Reading Is Fundamental
Reading Is Fundamental, an organization that works to build literacy throughout the nation by helping young people discover the joy of reading, was founded in 1966 and is the oldest and largest children and family literacy nonprofit in the United States. In 2004, Kappa Kappa Gamma adopted RIF as it's national philanthropy and developed its 'Reading Is Key' program to introduce new books to at-risk children.
Reading Is Key Event
Members of the Dallas Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma volunteer to support the Reading Is Fundamental program in promoting literacy at a local elementary school. Each child receives a book bag which includes a new book with a specially designed bookplate, information about public libraries, and a variety of gifts.
Barnes & Noble has generously donated a portion of their sales for a few days at the Lincoln Center store on Northwest Highway in support of our literacy project. Kappas volunteer their time and talent to educate customers about RIF, our Reading Is Key event, and Kappa's commitment to literacy.
