Adopt a Family for the Holidays!

Within Reach is partnering with South Orange County Outreach to Adopt a Family for the Holidays.

This is a perfect way for your family to give back to those in need this holiday season.

Last we surprised a family of 5 with so many goodies and essentials, I cried as we unloaded our car because I was so proud of all the Within Reach families that help make it happen.We not only offer reading tutoring and math tutoring, but we are fortunate to share in the holiday spirit with others! I am excited for this years family!

Here is some info from their website:
