San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2012
McMillan Study Guides Inc., the premier publisher of self-study materials for US Air Force members, today awarded an inaugural donation of $500 to United Through Reading® in support of its service to military members. The non-profit organization promotes the read-aloud experience for separated families worldwide.
“Supporting our local and military communities is one of our core values,” said Susan Emry, vice president. “Together, with organizations like United Through Reading, we’re proud to positively impact the lives of those who serve.” McMillan also funds several other nonprofits that serve military members and veterans, such as the Fisher House Foundation, Supplies for Soldiers and Cup of Joe for a Joe.
United Through Reading offers deployed parents the opportunity to read storybooks to their children via video-recordings. The experience helps ease the stress of separation and build family resiliency by creating a positive emotional connection. The organization, founded in 1989, serves more than 325,000 beneficiaries each year, with a total of more than one million beneficiaries to-date.
Since 2000, McMillan has donated more than $150,000 to charitable organizations through the company’s “Call-a-Friend” program. Local beneficiaries include Woods Humane Society, Maxine Lewis Homeless Shelter, The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County, The de Groot Home and The Salvation Army.
