Ways to Help

“Funding Our Future” is hardly just our newest tagline. Diminishing budgets and the times we live in have called for greater grassroots support and more extensive community involvement. We must advocate, and provide, for children in our public schools!

We truly appreciate the vast amounts of volunteer time and financial support so many in the county have given us over the years. But our mission stays the same. Our programs expand due to circumstances and demonstrated need in the school district. We humbly ask for more.

First Library

The program encourages reading by coordinating “read-ins” with Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms throughout the school year. Following each “read-in,” students are given a copy of the book to take home for their own “first library.” If you would like to volunteer for a read-in at a class as a "celebrity reader," contact us.
