Spread the Word Nevada Receives Grant from MGM

MGM Resorts Foundation selected Spread the Word Nevada to receive a $27,000 grant. 

The grant will fund the Breakfast with Books program. The program distributes books to children but it also works to spread the love of reading to the whole family. Last year, more than 21,500 books were distributed during these family literacy events. This year, the group plans each month to serve an average of 3,900 students and their families by adopting 26 elementary schools in Clark County. 

"This generous grant by MGM Resorts Foundation will ensure that the low-income families in the Las Vegas Valley have an opportunity to participate in a program that will bring them  together to share quality time, while receiving  literacy tips, books, and activities to use at home as a family," stated Lisa Habighorst, Executive Director of Spread the Word Nevada. 

The MGM Resorts Foundation receives donations through MGM employee charitable contributions. Its mission is to build a stronger community through contributions to worthy charities.  

Spread the Word Nevada is a non-profit  focused on improving literacy, book ownership and family communication. Since it started a decade ago, Spread the Word has served more than 191,000 young people in southern Nevada.
