Every year, CAPTRUST Community Foundation selects a Charity of Choice. Our 2017 Charity of Choice is Read and Feed, based in Raleigh, NC.


ABOUT READ AND FEED

Read and Feed, an organization dedicated to helping elementary school aged kids learn to or improve their reading skills by creating what they refer to as a "nurturing, neighborhood environment." To do this, Read and Feed uses mobile RV classrooms, provides meals and mentors to the children, as well as books for the children. According to Read and Feed, 88% of children who attend their program have improved reading attitude or confidence - an important accomplishment! For more information, please visit www.readandfeed.org.


Being the 2015 CAPCommunity Foundation Charity of Choice was the catalyst for great growth, enabling our organization to expand rapidly. As a result, we are able to provide hundreds more flights for children to access life-saving treatments.
