Las Vegas, March 7, 2016 —  MountainView Hospital employees volunteered their time at J.T. McWilliams Elementary School last week, Feb. 29 to March 4, to help celebrate National Reading Week.

MountainView employees read in classes throughout the week and helped support the school’s Literacy Night event. Employees also collected and donated books for the school and students.

National Reading Week is a nationwide event to celebrate the joys of reading. Reading week coincides with Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2.
