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!

Our Mission

To Help Children in Low-Income Areas Become Healthy and Literate
