This is The Book Truck's 2nd Annual Read-A-Thon!! 

On Decmeber 2nd, our readers will spend the day reading to fight the literacy crisis for foster care and low-income teens!! Through our Literacy Events and Literacy Center Programs, The Book Truck gets teens who have never picked up a book to start reading. For teens with few other supports, literacy is a true pathway out of poverty.

“Because of The Book Truck, now I’m a reader. I’m not sure I would have graduated from high school if it hadn’t been for them. When I volunteer and someone asks me about a book, I wonder, will I get to change that person’s life like the Book Truck changed mine?” — Jonathan M., Book Truck visitor/volunteer. 

Give these teens a chance at a better future by supporting our Read-A-Thon!
