There are so many ways to serve in Reading and give back to the community – giving it hope and a future. Sometimes the hardest part is finding out where the best places are to get started. We’ve compiled a small list of different organizations always looking for people willing to invest time, energy, and resources into their cause and the people they serve. Here’s a couple that we recommend contacting and getting involved with:
