Acts of Kindness: Reading to Shelter Dogs as part of Little Helpers of Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS - Summertime provides the perfect opportunity to get your kids involved with giving back.

Little Helpers of Las Vegas holds monthly activities throughout the year. For the month of June, we caught up with several volunteers reading to shelter dogs at the Animal Foundation.

Little Helpers is a national organization, Crystal Dunning leads the Las Vegas Chapter. She says the purpose it to create activities that build a child's self confidence, while giving back. Children as young as three are encouraged to attend, and the age limit is typically about 13.

After presenting a volunteer with the organization with our Acts of Kindness award this past spring, I signed my daughter up for the program, she enjoyed the activity at the Animal Foundation immensely. "It's cool,  I get to learn about dogs and test my abilities of reading to them."

Other Mom's we caught up with like Janelle Wilcox and Vanessa Taylor say the experience was a win-win. 

"He loves animals and reading, we read every night," said Janelle. Vanessa learned a lot about the facility as well, "We would love to come again, it's been great. It's also good to know about this center, because I haven't had the chance and I've been here my whole life."

You can sign up your child by visiting the Little Helpers of Las Vegas Facebook page.
