MRC is committed to partnering with teachers, community members, and organizations to provide educational and project based programs that promote literacy and citizenship to students of all ages.

Reading skills are so important for students to succeed and this is another way to involve and encourage students in reading while teaching and instilling philanthropic ideals.
