For the second time, ReadUP has been chosen as a grant recipient by the Gerry Egan Children’s Charity. After a long illness, Gerry passed away this winter. Our condolences to his wife, Carol McPherson, and to all of the Egan/McPherson family for their loss. Gerry’s dream of leaving a legacy to help children will be realized through ReadUP’s work in supporting children as they learn to read. From the many ReadUP participants and volunteers, we extend our sincere thanks to Gerry’s family for their generous donation. They are making a tangible difference in children’s lives, just as Gerry intended.
