dd’s DISCOUNTS/First Book

For the third year in a row, dd’s DISCOUNTS in Richmond made Read-Aloud the recipient of its Youth Literacy Fundraiser in August!

This year, dd’s DISCOUNTS raised over $3,100 for Read-Aloud, that we get to use as credit at First Book Marketplace.

Thank you to all who donated, the dd’s DISCOUNTS staff who hosted us and promoted us, and First Book, for helping put this together!
