PICK A FLOWER. BUY A BOOK. GROW A READER!
Help children in need foster a love of reading
Southwest Human Development has partnered with dozens of Valley businesses to help Grow A Reader during the month of May— and you can help too!
There is only one book per 300 children in low-income neighborhoods, yet children living in upper- and middle-income areas have 13 books each. Children without access to early literacy materials often face challenges as they enter school and prepare for their education. For families who struggle to make ends meet, purchasing new books simply does not compete with priorities like providing food, clothing and shelter.
Today, you can help us change that!
Help children in need experience your favorite childhood stories. When you purchase books from our virtual book drive, you’re planting the seed to help a child develop a lifelong love for reading. Plus, when you donate through our online shopping cart, your donation is eligible for up to an $800 Arizona Charitable Tax Credit!
