Learning loss is a key concern for all children during this crisis, but especially for the young people who need us the most. The Boys & Girls Club of Harrisburg has a fun solution to the educational challenges created from school closures due to COVID-19.

Now through June 12th when Summer Reading Programs would be starting...we are inviting you to record yourself reading 10 books from an approved Summer Reading List.

We are also encouraging everyone to pledge a donation per book read by your favorite volunteer below!

Together, we will be creating unique educational content for the kids while raising critical support for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harrisburg to continue providing caring mentors to help children in our community develop essential skills for academic success, good character and citizenship and a healthy lifestyle.

The stay-at-home orders are challenging for all of us, but as Mason Cooley once said, "Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are." Thanks for taking us on your literary adventure!
