Summer Book Bag 2021

Keep kids reading during the summer of 2021!
Support literacy development!  

Our 2020 campaign gave books to many excited kids! We are now gearing up for 2021. Help give elementary school children Summer Book Bags they keep and call their own. Each bag has carefully selected new and used books to keep children reading over the summer.  

Why this is important:
Each year we witness reading abilities decline over summer vacation. Teachers often call this the “summer slide”. After weeks of playing and having fun all summer long they return to school and teachers notice reading levels have declined. Some students catch up quickly, but for others this means weeks and sometimes months of struggle to get back to where they left off before vacation started. This can be seen among many students, but it especially impacts those who do not have their own books (matching their interests and reading level range) readily available at home. This can widen the achievement gap.  

How you can help:
Make a contribution that will provide Summer Book Bags to as many kids as possible, so they can keep reading this summer. Every dollar helps!

A second way you can help is to spread the word about our project. Encourage your friends through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media as well as through in person conversations.
