Volunteers become army of readers

Salvation Army volunteer reader

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) If you love to read and contribute to the community, The Salvation Army wants you for a special event. The organization is reaching out to people to volunteer at an event to celebrate reading.

This volunteer opportunity is Friday, October 23. Volunteers are needed to fill shifts in school across the community starting at 8 a.m.

Volunteers will read a book to the students and then help lead them in an activity related to the book.

Volunteers will have an orientation and training session where they can practice reading the book and go over their classroom activity.

The Salvation Army hopes to share the love of reading with over 1,000 children in Grand Rapids. They are looking for more than 60 volunteers. For more information and to sign up, visit http://bit.ly/armyofreaders.
