The Polk County population of preschool children is just under 3,000. We have touched the families over 2,500 children to date, and distributed 61,757 books to Polk County children. To be ongoing, we must have a sustaining income to pay the $2.12 a book for each child or $2,200 each month. Funds from our donors are used specifically for the books, which are free to our enrolled children. All of our board members are volunteers.
Your tax-deductible donation virtually guarantees that a child will enter kindergarten with reading skills above those not enrolled in our program.
For your donation, we will publish your business ad and link, or your name on the "Sponsor" page of our website (www.readpolkcounty.com) for a full year for each year you are a donor.
