Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its participation in the Reading Buddies program.[@@]
The program pairs Hartford Volunteers with third-grade students from a school near the company’s headquarters. The volunteers and students meet about once a week to read books from the school library.
More than 80 volunteers are participating in the program this year, and the program has reached about 1,000 third-graders over the past 10 years, Hartford says.
