Altura Staffers open imaginations as part of ‘Read Across America Day’
RIVERSIDE, CA (March 28, 2014) — Seven Altura Credit Union employees read to children at schools in Riverside County, Calif., recently as part of Read Across America Day, a national literacy program designed to spur children to read more. Read Across America Day is celebrated every year close to the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.
Altura’s volunteers this year visited elementary school classrooms in the Riverside and Alford Unified School Districts where they read to students.
The event was created by the National Education Association in 1997 to celebrate, promote and generate enthusiasm for reading as well as spark imaginations. Parents and volunteers, like those from Altura, read to children of all ages around the country at schools, libraries and community centers as part of the national event.
Altura is very proud of its 57 years of service to Members in the Inland Empire. Altura is a past-recipient of the California Award for Performance Excellence (CAPE), the state’s equivalent of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Today, Altura Credit Union has 85,500 Members and nearly $700 million in total assets. For more information on Altura, visit our website, www.alturacu.com, or call 1-888-883-7228.
