Give the Gift of Reading
We are excited to once again partner with the Children’s Book Bank, supporting their work to bring the gift of reading to kids throughout Portland. Easy access to books is foundational to literacy development. The scarcity of books in the home is one of the greatest obstacles that must be overcome by children living in poverty. Children with books in the home become better readers and do better in school.
Please bring your new or gently used books to the brunch and help us give Portland’s most vulnerable children the gift of reading. Types of books most in need are Dr. Seuss and Spanish-language books. Other requests are picture books, board books, alphabet books, and counting books. (New books are preferred for Christmas.)
