Community-based programs and organizations, tutoring/mentoring programs, and even faith-based literacy outreach programs may apply. Organizations applying for books may not discriminate, are required to have a literacy component to their program or project, must give the books to the children, and a majority of the children served must be from low-income households.
First Book’s mission is to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. Donate online or learn more about First Book—Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul at www.firstbook.org/msp.
