Starting September 9th - 13th , 2013, RSVP will partner with other non profits in Central Arkansas to recruit volunteers and engage as many elementary schools in Pulaski, Saline and Lonoke counties in Central Arkansas for the "Reading in Remembrance of 9/11".

RSVP volunteers will be asked to go into several elementary schools in a three county area of Pulaski, Saline and Lonoke counties in Central Arkansas. These volunteers will be reading books about hero's to the PK - 6th grade students. We have partnered with firemen, police officers, soldiers and veterans to go into the participating schools and tell wonderful stories of how ordinary people like us...helped our heros during the tragic 9/11 event. How they are here today to help serve and protect us from harm.

Once the book(s) have been read,those books will be donated to the school library in honor of those heros who risked their lives to save others during 9/11.

Our goal is to put a book into each classroom or school library so that these children will be inspired and aware of real life heros in our country that serve us everyday.
