Nearly 2 out of 3 children in low-income communities don’t have a single children’s book to call their own.
When you purchase books for donation from our online shopping cart*, you’re helping to get books into the hands of children who need them the most.
Thanks to a generous partnership with our friends at Humana, they’re going to match a book for every book you donate through our online cart below!** That means your 2 books become 4, 5 books become 10, or 10 books become 20!
By participating in Southwest Human Development’s Grow A Reader virtual book drive, you’re planting the seed to help a child develop a lifelong love for reading. You are more than an early literacy advocate, you are a life changer.
*Books purchased through the Grow A Reader campaign are not delivered to the purchaser. Funds donated through the online shopping cart are pooled to purchase books at discounted rates and are distributed to families in need who participate in Southwest Human Development’s early literacy programs like Raising A Reader and Reach Out and Read.
