Together with organizations READ ON! and Project READ, Sinclair is sponsoring the 4th Annual Summer Read On Challenge. New or gently used books are being collected for distribution to over 2,500 children (grades K-3) in Montgomery County so that they each have 10 books. Sinclair's goal is to collect 500!

Research has shown that students living in economically poor neighborhoods lose approximately 2 months in reading achievement every summer. Lack of books in the home is strongly related to summer learning loss, and having books available can help children maintain their skills going into the new school year.
