Real Men Read is n initiative to connect male figures of the surrounding community and those of celebrity status with school age children in hopes of sparking their interest in reading and creating a opportunity for the men to become mentors.
Over a hundred men showed up ready to read and interact with students this past week at Columbia Elementary School in Dekalb county. Volunteers included TV star and comedian Tommy Ford from the hit series MARTIN & REEC of Hot 107.9 FM. Both Ford & REEC are children’s book authors and donated copies of their creations to the program. Members of the police department, local church, fraternities and business also joined this wonderful cause.
