Ensley Elementary School Students Receive Books During National Reading Month

Statistics show one in three children entering kindergarten lack the basic skills they need to learn to read, and two-thirds of U.S fourth graders do not read at grade level. 

Sinclair, Inc. is partnering with Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), the nation's leading children's literacy non-profit organization, to help with their efforts in creating lifelong readers. 

Sinclair will be raising funds to bring books and reading resources to children in communities across the U.S. that need them the most through our Sinclair Cares website throughout the month of March, which is National Reading Month. 

The Sinclair Cares: Supporting Children's Literacy campaign will also be supported by a $25,000 donation from Sinclair. 

If you would like to donate financially to help provide children access to books to become more successful in school, visit for more information.
