Open a book – change a young life

Maranda

Maranda recently met a group of men in the Muskegon area making a huge difference in the lives of children. Men of Color Read is an initiative where professional men come together on a regular basis to help eradicate functional illiteracy.

They visit classrooms, like the one at Edgewood Elementary in Muskegon Heights, and read to children. They say it’s important to spread the word about the value of reading and show the students that they are men in the community who care about their futures.
