Embracing Our Differences, in partnership with the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading with support from The Patterson Foundation, the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, United Way Suncoast and an anonymous family foundation, will offer a unique virtual classroom reading opportunity promoting diversity, inclusion, respect and integrity in pre-k through third grade classrooms.

  • All volunteers will read to students virtually whether students are in classrooms and/or meeting virtually.
  • Classroom, student and volunteer books will still be distributed via methods consistent with individual school district policies and CDC guidelines.
