Donation Brings Books to Rundle Elementary

 

A gift from a mining company will help improve students at an at-risk elementary school in Las Vegas.

Barrick Gold Corporation donated $50,000 to Spread the Word Nevada, a group working to improve literacy in southern Nevada.

The money will be used to fund Rundle Elementary School's participation in a program that provides free books each month to every student for the next two years. For some children, these books are the only ones they own.

Besides the books, the program also includes family literacy events to improve the reading skills of every member of the family. It also provides tutoring programs for struggling readers.

At a celebration of the donation set for January 25, each student will get five free books to take home with them.
