About 90 prAna employees volunteered with Rolling Readers USA last Friday at its new program in San Marcos.
prAna, an athletic apparel company based in Carlsbad, read books to more than 1,100 children at Alvin Dunn and Joli Ann Leichtag elementary schools. Rolling Readers—which provides weekly read-aloud volunteers and new books to children living in impoverished communities—recently expanded its program to San Marcos.
"We're thankful to have the support of a local company with a long history in North County," said Rolling Readers president and Patch associate regional editor Hoa Quach. "We're hopeful other companies will follow in prAna's footsteps and also support their local children."
CEO Scott Kerslake called the day of service a "great day at work."
“Giving is one of our fundamental values here at prAna," he said. "Rolling Readers creates an opportunity for us to be of service to our community."
Rolling Readers was founded in 1991 and currently serves 6,500 children living in low-income communities in San Diego County. For more information, visit Rollingreaders.org
