This year, the members of the MLA have chosen SitStayRead as their charity of choice, donating books, supplies, and money to our organization over the past few months leading up to the start of the event. During this annual conference, SitStayRead was present to collect donations, educate members about our organization, and introduce attendees to some of the Certified Reading Assistance Dogs in our program.

Thank you to all the members for giving $300 worth of books and supplies and $1,160 in funds to our organization! We are thankful to have been chosen and had a great time at the event!
