The Need

In a typical middle-income school of 300 children, each child has approximately 15 age-appropriate books at home with which to practice reading. In a typical low-income school of 300 children, each child has only 1 age-appropriate book at home.

Portland's Need

It is estimated that approximately 100,000 children in the Portland Metro area do not have access to books in their homes, making it difficult to learn to read and to succeed in school and in life.

Our Goal

Establish a self-funding, sustainable book collection and distribution ecosystem delivering a million books every year to children living without books in their home. We want to permanently end child book-poverty in our community.

Don't hesitate to make a difference.
