Research shows that 61% of low-income families have no books at all in their homes for their children and 80% of preschool and after-school programs serving low-income populations have no age-appropriate books for their children. It is our drive, our mission to end that cycle. We collect, sort and deliver books via bicycle to children in Title 1 Schools and low-income communities and coordinate one-on-one reading, educating them on the importance of literacy and a healthy lifestyle. Join our cause. Live our Mission!
To Help Children in Low-Income Areas Become Healthy and Literate
A World Where Every Child is Healthy and Literate
As a 501(c)3 non-profit, we rely on charitable donations to keep the lights on, keep the wheels turning, and provide these invaluable programs to the children in our low-income areas
As a primarily volunteer organization, we are always in need of new or gently-used elementary, middle, and high school-aged books
