3,000 kids served in 3 years - Thank You!



In 2016 we expanded our program to serve every Minneapolis Public School with at least 50% of kids on free or reduced lunch. That was 28 schools with 2,000 1st graders buying 20,000 books - all thanks to supporters like you! In 2017, we served 1st and 2nd graders, reaching about 4,000 kids in Minneapolis.

For 2017 we will need about $140,000 for the program, and as of March 2017 we are at $120,000 committed by donors. 

Every dollar helps!
