Members of Gallagher & Kennedy law firm’s Professional Women’s Group on May 28 donated 333 books to more than 80 children at Phoenix Day, an early education and youth development center serving underprivileged children in South Phoenix.
Over the course of several weeks, the Professional Women’s Group collected new and gently used children’s books firm-wide in an effort to ensure that every student at Phoenix Day received age-appropriate books to take home. The donation was the culmination of the group’s participation in the United Way Women’s Leadership Council’s Million Minutes Reading Challenge.
Committed to making a difference in the life of a child by sharing the joy of reading and helping children succeed in school and life, 18 Gallagher & Kennedy women professionals formed a Million Minutes Team titled “Right to Read.” Since September of 2013, Team Right to Read has volunteered more than 7,300 minutes reading to Arizona’s youth.
