23 Dec GIVING THE GIFT OF LITERACY
GIVING THE GIFT OF LITERACY
With your help during these challenging times, Bridge of Books continues to give the gift of literacy:
- a young family that had only ONE book in their home received 12 books to jumpstart their home library so they too can work on reading skills
- thousands of displaced Afghan families living at Ft. Dix now have almost 9000 books to enjoy and improve language skills thanks to a joint effort with two other NJ non-profits
These are just two stories of children who now have books because of Bridge of Books. Despite the loss of our home during the pandemic, we are still working hard to provide books to underserved children throughout New Jersey, making an impact in big and small ways on a daily basis. All from three 10×10 storage units.
One book at a time, we are leveling the playing field by getting books into the homes and hands of as many children as possible. All children need a fair chance to succeed in school. All children need books to help develop literacy skills. All children deserve to see themselves in books, escape and create a love of reading. And that only happens with ongoing access to books.
For all the lives we have touched, we know that there are countless children across New Jersey who still need access to the books we provide. Bridge of Books needs to exist for these children. But without an operating facility, our ability to get books to them is severely limited.
In order to continue our story, we need your financial support so Bridge of Books can evolve into a stronger organization, rent space and get even more books into the hands of kids in need across New Jersey.
Many thanks for your generous support.
