Need to Read had a one year goal of distributing 5,000 books
(4-6 bundled books for 600 households) to families.
We successfully achieved this on July 24th, 2018 and
hope to do it again in 2019!
Book Bundles contain four age-appropriate books targeting
families with children, infants to 5 years of age.
The Need to Read program is different from
other charity organizations in three ways:
• There is no known organization that solely addresses the need for pre-reading literacy skills.
• Most early reading programs focus on children attending Kindergarten and elementary. Need to Read focuses on children 5 years of age and younger, their parents and their need to be exposed to reading at an early age.
• Community volunteer involvement in canvasing the community to reach local households is central to N2R’s success model.
