You can help students become better readers!
Gresham Ford, Gresham Fred Meyer and the Gresham Outlook are teaming up with the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation to help students learn to read. Again this year, the foundation will raise funds through its annual phone-a-thon to support the school district’s core reading program “Literacy by Design.” This program helps every student in every elementary school in our district. The event also provides fundraising support to high school student groups. Last year, the phone-a-thon raised nearly $30,000. From February 21-24, volunteers will call parents and ask for donations. Gresham Ford, Gresham Fred Meyer and the Gresham Outlook are sponsoring the fundraiser in hopes to raise even more this year. As an incentive, if you donate $40 or more, you will receive a $20 gift certificate for service from Gresham Ford and a free DVD “The Tails of Abigail.” So when you hear the phone ring in February, answer the call!
