Our special offering this Sunday is for Reading is Fundamental (RIF), an organization dedicated to motivating children to read by with them, their parents, and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life. Trinity’s United Methodist Women group has been making RIF happen at Ridgetop Elementary for years, and Trinity is committed to supporting them in this endeavor.
Our vision is a literate America in which all children have access to books and discover the joys and value of reading.
To motivate young children to read by working with them, their parents, and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life. RIF’s highest priority is reaching underserved children from birth to age 8.
In fiscal year 2011, federal funding for Reading is Fundamental was completely eliminated ($24.8 million.)
