Jenna Ortega Reads Stories to Kids Impacted by School Closures

You star Jenna Ortega is the latest celebrity to jump on board the #coronakindness train.

The actress has joined Jennifer Garner, Gal Gadot, Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon and many other famous faces in  the #savewithstories campaign, where celebrities post videos of themselves reading children’s books aloud.

The aim is to comfort kids in isolation due to the coronavirus lockdowns, but also to raise money for the 30 million children in the US who rely on school for meals.

Jenna is encouraging her fans to donate to Save the Children and No Kid Hungry who are both working to ensure families impacted by school closures have access to food trucks or other meal delivery systems.

You can watch her reading “Don’t Call Me Bear!” by Aaron Blabey below:
