We Need Your Help!
REadingADvantage, Inc. is committed to see that all children,
regardless of their economic situation, have access to an ongoing supply
of new books. Children with access to books in their homes can achieve
more in school and in life.
With the help of our partners, donors, and dedicated volunteers we
provided over 3,000 books to low-income children in Contra Costa County
California in 2013. Yet thousands more low-income children are still
waiting for our help in 2014!
Together we can provide books and literacy workshops to low-income
families in all geographic areas of Contra Costa County and make a difference
in the lives of our children.
Will you join us in ensuring the children we serve have the books they
need to be successful in school and beyond by donating today?
