We are proud to have over 200 community partners enacting our early literacy programs, but the need in Central Texas is greater than we can currently support. Even with many generous gifts that we are thankful for, we have identified 20 zip codes in Central Texas where we could be doing a much better job of reaching the right kids with the right books at the right time.
Please consider sponsoring our programs at a rate of $10 per child in one of the following zip codes to help us reach out to healthcare, education, and health and human service providers to reach the children who will benefit from book donations the most. These zip codes were identified as being high poverty in numbers or percentage of children by the American Community Survey released November 2018, and then cross referenced with our annual program data for both number of children and number of books distributed over the past five years. While we will continue to serve our current partners and others, these zip codes are the ones we really need to reach in order to fully serve Central Texas comprehensively with effective early literacy programs. We envision a day when we can fully saturate all the need with at least 3 books a year to the 80,000 children living in poverty in our region. You can click the map to see where we’re at with percentage of children and books distributed in each targeted zip code location. What will it take to get us to 100% or more of children attending a BookSpring event? You!
You can make this happen. Your support today will allow us to distribute books and support motivational activities specifically in that area for a full year!
If you sign on, we’d be happy to set up a site visit so you can see your generosity in action, and we can offer company acknowledgement and volunteer opportunities as well.
Please contact Andrea Angelo, Director of Development & Marketing, at (512) 472-1791 x 104 to discuss your ideas for support, and learn more about how your time, dollars, and volunteers can be involved in early literacy through BookSpring. We are always open to customizing partnerships for the benefit of all parties.
