Read 3: Help Grow Young Minds

Read 3: Grow Young Minds

Help shape a child's mind by reading to them three times a week. When you read to a child they develop the reading skills they need to succeed in school. Sadly, not all children have books in their homes. That's why in 2011 H-E-B launched Read 3. Since 2011, H-E-B has donated nearly 4 million books to children in need.
