Give diverse books to New Haven children this summer!
New Haven Reads has distributed thousands of gently-used books to children at the New Haven meal pick-up locations since early May. It has been exciting to see the joy on children's faces as they receive their books.
We are inspired us to do even more to support our students. We are asking for YOUR help to ensure that the children in our community are receiving more diverse books- including books by black and brown authors, books with main characters that reflect the faces and lives of the children reading, and books in Spanish.
Your gift will help us make a discounted, bulk purchase and 800 books will be distributed at six meal pick up locations every week across New Haven this summer.
Our goal is to be able to purchase 1,600 books which would cover two weeks of book distributions. Please join us and make sure that our community's children have diverse books!
