Impact Questions
GoalsHelpWhat is the organization aiming to accomplish? This is the organization's ultimate goal for intended impact. Promoting literacy in our community is an ongoing priority. The Friend’s “Celebrate with Books” project strives to put a book in the hands of as many children as possible. We believe every child should have a book to call his own and the chance to develop a lifelong love of reading. Through the Celebrate with Books program, books are given to children who may never have the opportunity to own their own books. Help us reach these children by applying for assistance.
