With schools and librariries closed, too many children do not have access to new books to keep them engaged and practicing their reading. The good news is -- with YOUR help, SMART is still distributing books even with programs closed. Books have been delivered by bus drivers and teachers, picked up with lunches and food distribution boxes. Imagining these kiddos, distanced from their friends and teachers breaks my heart -- but thinking of them with their new books to read brings me joy (and I hope you, too!)
Because of YOU, I've already met my first goal -- now let's go for the stretch goal together. $1,200 will provide a whole classroom of students with mini libraries of their own -- that's 420 brand new books for 30 kiddos to write their name in and treasure forever. Thank you for your support!
Friends, if you know me you know I love to read. Please join me with a gift today, to ensure kids have the opportunity to find out what they like to read and keep reading!
