Green Eggs and Ham
The Little Engine That Could
Diary of a Wimpy Kid

All recognizable titles that we cherish from childhood memories! For a growing number of children in Lincoln, these favorites are not accessible in their homes and many children are struggling to read each day. Please join us and help make a difference in a child’s life. Lincoln currently has an 82% third grade reading proficiency as stated in the Lincoln Vital Signs report. It’s also reported that students who do not read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma. You can improve these statistics and be part of the change with a donation to the Virtual Book Drive!

Our goal is to raise $12,000.

The books will be delivered by volunteers like you, to children in our community starting on United Way’s Day of Action, Wednesday, June 21, and distributed throughout the year at various volunteering events. Watch for future emails. Thank you for your support and for giving a child the opportunity to develop a love of reading and create cherished memories.
