70,000

FREE BOOKS GIVEN AWAY

During the 2020/2021 school year, students at 14 elementary schools received brand-new books to help inspire a life-long love for reading.

This past year, we saw a lot of people show up.  When our children needed a safe place for remote learning, the community came together to open 27 learning pod locations across the state. When Wilmington’s grade-schoolers started falling behind, educators and volunteers stepped in to help them develop better reading skills. And, when parents were laid off from work because of the pandemic, neighbors helped them feed and provide for their families.

Despite these recent victories, the work is just getting started. We have a long way to go, and we need leaders like you to join us in the trenches.

We need people to bring their ideas, gifts, and passions to the table to help neighbors in need. It’s only through generous support from people like you, that we’re able to work to make Delaware and Salem County (NJ) better for all people.
