In celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Pi Beta Phi’s annual Fraternity Day of Service, the Nation’s Capital-DC Alumnae Club (NCAC) of the Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women is gearing up for its Make Your Mark for Literacy event on February 22, 2014. Held at the Barnes & Noble in Clarendon from 10:00am-2:00om, the annual event serves as a nationwide celebration of Pi Beta Phi’s Read. Lead. Achieve. Initiative. The initiative focuses on “inspiring a lifelong love of reading that can unlock true potential creating a more literate and productive society.”

For the kids, they can enjoy birthday cake and story time with the Cat in the Hat. NCAC will also present a gift of 500 books, funded by a grant from First Book, to the Junior League of Washington’s (JLW) Resolution Read program.

Junior League of Washington DCJLW’s Resolution Read program focuses on distributing books to the children most in need – particularly those in D.C.’s Wards 5, 7, and 8. The partnership between Pi Beta Phi and First Book has been a powerful one: since the beginning of the partnership, they have donated more than $1 million — equaling about 2 million brand-new books. Resolution Read, which kicked off its efforts in June 2012, has committed to purchasing and distributing 100,000 new books to children in the greater Washington, D.C. community by partnering with local non-profits like NCAC.

So bring the kids and brush up on your Dr. Seuss to boost the impact of these dedicated organizations on D.C.’s literacy rate by attending the “Make Your Mark for Literacy” event!
