What new things will you help kids do because they can read?

It's our birthday and we're hoping for a gift from you!

You did it! You gave over $6,000! Thank you!

It's been 9 years since we opened our doors...we started by providing book bundles to the Wichita Center for Family and Community. Now we serve children through 17 community partners, as well as 10 school districts across Clackamas County.


This last school year was our biggest yet—over 30,000 books were gifted. But the job isn't finished. A new school year starts soon and you can help local children build a robot, follow a recipe, navigate a map, explore a new interest, or find answers to their many questions…because they can read! Together, we can give thousands of books to thousands of kids!
