Approximately 61 percent of low-income families do not have a single piece of reading material suitable for a child.
Ferstreaders is a wonderful organization that brings a book to a child every month in the mail until their 5th birthday...changing their lives through the gift of literacy.
Thanks to JoAnn Leimberg for researching and telling us about this excellent choice for one of our donations. We were so pleased to direct $1500 to their reading program for Nassau kids.
