Donor Spotlight: Stephane G.

Of the many ways to get involved with New Haven Reads, Stephane Girard personally participates in a good number of them.  He volunteered as a reading tutor from 2015 to 2018 , and last year he joined the Spelling Bee committee. Thinking on his experience as a tutor, he said, “[The students’] motivation and personality make spending the hour with them a pleasure.”

Donor Spotlight: Bonnie D.

One of the truly special things about New Haven Reads is the group of remarkable individuals we are proud to call our sustaining donors. One of those individuals is Bonnie, who, despite moving to China, has kept up her commitment and is now one of NHR’s longest-running sustaining donors. We recently asked her some questions about her experience and why she contributes.
