On Friday, March 1st, UWMC celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by reading to children throughout Monterey County.
Volunteers spread the joy of reading to pre-school students at schools in Seaside, Marina, Salinas, and Greenfield neighborhoods.
National Education Association’s Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Across the United States, schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books.
Thank you to Marina, Seaside, and Salinas Child Development Centers, Mary Chapa, Vista Verde, Oak Ave preschools, and Del Rey Woods Elementary Schoo for letting us celebrate Dr Seuss's birthday with them.
Special thank you to Dr. John Bennetts for sponsoring this volunteer event!
