Spring Fundraiser collected $5,900+ to benefit SMART Reading

First-year effort was huge success, thanks to our generous members!

Thank you for donating in the branches, over the phone, and online to Mid Oregon's first-ever SMART Reading Branch Fundraiser. A total of $5,937 was collected, which will stay right in the communities where it was donated, supporting the programs happening all over Central Oregon.

SMART Reading is a literacy nonprofit that serves kids in Oregon's highest-need schools and communities by providing two ingredients critical to literacy and learning success—shared reading time and books that students can keep. 

SMART Reading is reading with more than 1,000 students across 22 sites in Crook, Deschutes, Grant, Harney, Jefferson, and Northern Klamath counties. By helping children build confidence, literacy skills, and a love of reading, they hope to reduce the negative ripple effects of illiteracy and help them realize their full potential. 

Members of our Mid Oregon team currently volunteer as SMART readers at local school sites, so we are proud to build on our partnership by supporting SMART Reading for our spring in-branch fundraiser.
