For Immediate Release

Donate to “Reading is Fundamental” at Macy’s to Benefit Redwood City Project READ, and get Great Discount Coupons!

Redwood City, CA - July 6, 2009 – Now through August 31st, when customers at Macy’s stores make a $3 (or more) donation to Reading is Fundamental (RIF), Redwood City’s Project READ will benefit. Out of each $3 donation, $1 goes to a local RIF program, $1 to RIF’s Multicultural Literacy Campaign, and $1 to RIF’s national reading program. For each $3 donation, donors get a coupon for $10 off a Macy’s purchase of $50 or more. And the coupons are “stackable” - when two $3 RIF donations are made, the discount is $20 off a $100 purchase, when three donations are made, that’s $30 off a $150 purchase, and so on.

What an easy way to help literacy locally and throughout California, and provide funding to participating California public libraries that are part of the State Library's RIF program. This program will help the Redwood City Public Library to receive additional funds to purchase much-needed books for families and children in the Project READ program. Macy’s customers can make a difference with just a small (or large!) donation, the next time they shop. The Redwood City community is encouraged to visit any local Macy’s store and make a donation to RIF, knowing that it will benefit Redwood City Project READ.

Redwood City Project READ tutors work one-on-one, or with a small group, for just a few hours a week, helping learners attain their personal educational goals. Tutors work with learners in a relaxed and supportive environment, providing a source of inspiration and hope, and instill a lifelong love of learning. Tutoring sessions are individualized, and designed to meet the needs of learners to improve their skills, learn and achieve their goals. For more information call Project READ at (650) 780-7077 or go to

The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and is the learning center of the community.
