Volunteer to Read!

Get involved in the community! We're looking for volunteers from local businesses and the community at large to spend half an hour on October 27, 2017 at 10:00 am reading to students in our Windsor Preschool to Grade 2 classrooms.

Please call the Chamber Office at 860-688-5165 to volunteer or email info@windsorcc.org.

The Windsor Chamber of Commerce and the Windsor Public Schools are working together again this year to offer you an opportunity to be involved with "Businesses Fueling Minds Through Books" on October 27.

There are 46 classrooms in Pre-K to grade 2. Each year we collect monetary donations so that we can donate one copy of our selected book to each classroom. If your business chooses to sponsor a classroom by donating $25, your company's name will appear on the inside cover of one book. You can sponsor as many classrooms as you like and your company name would be inscribed in as many as you fund.

Your company would also have the option of sending a volunteer to read the book to one of the classrooms in the morning.

This great opportunity allows Windsor Businesses to join a collaborative effort to re-enforce the importance of reading. If you are interested in sponsoring a classroom or reading, please call 860-688-5165 or use the link below to donate one or more books.

Second Grade: She Persisted
In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen American women who helped shape our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. They all certainly persisted.
