I spent some time in the SMART program for about a year while I lived in Roseburg, Ore. It was so much fun to sit down and read with the kids. The program directors were so amazing and had a real love for reading and even more for the children. I’ve never done volunteer work that left me feeling as good as I felt working with the SMART program. I always walked away with more than I gave, and that was before I’d loaded my pockets up with the free candy they gave us at the end of each day.
Three cheers for SMART and all the volunteers for making such a big difference in the lives of kids!
