Why do we hold our annual Day of Action book drive and volunteer event? Because one in three San Diego kids aren’t reading at grade level. Children who aren’t reading proficiently
by fourth grade–the year they go from learning to read to reading to learn–are four times more likely to drop out of high school.
Why is Day of Action on June 21, the longest day of the year? Because it marks the beginning of summer, a time when many of us recall the pleasures of getting lost in a book. But thousands of
San Diego’s low-income children won’t get that chance without your help because they lack access to books at home.
You can change that and have a positive influence in your community. Introduce a child to the wonders of reading. Change the story today and rewrite their future tomorrow!
Change the Story
for low-income kids!
Give today, open up new worlds to children, fuel their curiosity - and rewrite their futures.
