When I first moved back to Bend, we were a young married couple with no children. My husband Jordy and I wanted to be involved in the community and we chose to be SMART readers. It was so fulfilling to see the children improve upon their reading throughout the school year. And when we would arrive to read their little faces would light up with excitement. It is also a very easy way to give back due to the very small time commitment, but with huge gratification! Now that our own children and work keep us very busy, we continue to be yearly donors to the SMART program. Thank you SMART for enriching the children of tomorrow.
