A Reading Oasis for children in need

May 31, 2016
The Red Wing Noontime Kiwanis Club received a Kiwanis-family grant in June 2015 to create a Reading Oasis at Sunnyside Elementary School, just southeast of Minneapolis. In an area where financial need is great, many children in the school district do not have access to books at home.

The Reading Oasis provides books children can keep forever—and gets younger students interested in reading.
