Description

Join us in the 4th Annual Gift of Literacy Campaign!

This signature series of events runs from November 1- December 31, 2017. Last year’s campaign enabled us to put over 52,000 books into the homes of Rhode Island children. This year we hope to raise $10,000 for programs that build children’s opportunity, desire and passion to read.

As part of the two month initiative, you are invited to join Books Are Wings in a Donor Reception at our new location in Hope Artiste Village on Wednesday, November 29, 2017. We will also have a Holiday Open House on Saturday, December 9, 2017 with family fun activities. Numerous volunteer opportunities to provide children with the gift of literacy this holiday season is also be a large part of this campaign.
