Sponsor our... Programs

Books for the Break Partners with schools and food banks to deliver 10,000+ books to homeless and low-income children so they can read during breaks.
Literacy Bookshelves Stocks 30,000+ books on bookshelves at 40 agencies serving low-income clients so children can take a free book home to read.

Bag o' Books Packs individual book orders totaling 12,000+ books dispersed in 2021 for families in Thurston and Mason counties, ordered online and picked up at our office.
Read to Me Shares story time visits and free books with 180-210 children ages 3-5 at Head Start and other childcare facilities monthly.

What are the benefits of sponsoring an SSRF program? Besides getting books to the children of your community, SSRF sponsorship advertises your support by including your logo or name (depending on sponsorship level) on our website, e-Newsletters, and social media posts.
