Every year Podley associates, alongside other area Realtors®, donate their time and effort to the Door of Hope and the PUSD Summer Reading Program. This year we had 10 agents donate their time and efforts for this wonderful program. “It’s very exciting to be part of the summer book for 2nd graders for PUSD,” says Bia Kasten. “I love seeing the real estate community sharing its time and resources for the success of the program.”
The program is a great way to encourage Pasadena’s youth to read. It also provides them with the tools (books) to do so. All together, the district ordered 1,500 books this year – enough to buy a book for every 2nd grader this year!
However, the work didn’t end there. The volunteers got together and labelled all of the books for the students. They then hand-delivered the books themselves to each 2nd grade class and to Door of Hope. The day of giving included a celebration, with musical performances by the students, costumes and fun!
