“Thank you for allowing our pediatric population to benefit from the Reach Out and Read program. Many of our patients are living in poverty and parents may not be able to afford to buy books for their kids to read at home. These kids light up when we give them the books — their smile says it all! Again, thank you! Your generosity it is greatly appreciated.”

Reach Out and Read Colorado Annual Impact
“As a practicing pediatrician in the early days of this pandemic, I was thinking, ‘Are books really that important at this time?’ Now as the weeks have gone by, I feel the Reach Out and Read model is as important to well-child care as immunizations are. There is evidence and it impacts our kid’s lives. While we can’t hold or hug our young patients, we can hand them a book (a brand new, sterile book!) for them to take home. Sort of a distant hug. This is more important than ever. Thank you!”
Chad Rogers, MD
Thank you for your continued support during these unprecedented times!
