Helping-Hands 6Reading Our Way to a Brighter Future

Did you know that having access to books in the home is a stronger predictor of later academic achievement than socio-economic status? Yet, studies have shown 61% of low-income families don’t have any age appropriate books in their homes.

There are many, many children who have the potential for academic and professional achievement, but are stifled by a lack of the basic resources conducive to early learning.

The goal of Reading Recycled is to change that.

What We Do

Reading 10374077_337822613090311_8681786470790157897_nRecycled, takes new and gently used book donations and distributes them to these children.

  • Receive donations from book bins that we strategically place throughout the community
  • Give the books to families, churches, shelters, schools, and any other place a child might want to read (like the laundromat, etc)
  • Incorporate new books into birthday baskets that we distribute to children in need
  • Continually research new avenues to get these books to the children who need them the most!
