Give Today to Put Books in Hands and Homes.
We are putting diverse high-quality books in the hands and homes of children in Sacramento, with a focus on children going to school in the Promise Zone. The Promise Zone Literacy Initiative was established in the spring of 2021 to support Sacramento’s most underprivileged neighborhoods. Of the 20 elementary schools in the Promise Zone, only 36% of 3rd grade students were at grade-level reading compared to their Sacramento County peers at 46%.
At our annual gala we raised enough support to put 5 diverse books in the hands of all 4,000 Promise Zone kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade students between May and September 2022. Your support will help us reach more schools right now. Together, let’s get all kids reading.
