Stevens Point High School student Rachey Ley implemented the Literacy for Little Ones reading program at five hospitals in Wisconsin and Minnesota as a way to encourage parents to read to their newborns. "Every baby born at the hospital receives the book package, which includes a children’s book and a letter that I wrote explaining why it's so important to start reading at a young age" says Ley.
“Through Literacy for Little Ones, I have learned that no matter what my age, the best way I can make a positive difference in my community is by volunteering. I have been truly inspired by the number of youth, teens, and adults throughout North Central Wisconsin who have generously given their time or made donations to allow this project to grow and expand. It has made me realize that volunteerism is realizing how fortunate I am and trying to give back what others have done for me.” Rachel Ley http://www.rivernewsonline.com/main.asp?SectionID=9&SubSectionID=78&ArticleID=53089
