You made this possible!

Kids will start strong this year, thanks to YOU!I’m so excited to announce our second Virtual Book Drive was a success! Because of 182 supporters like you rising to the challenge, we exceeded our goal and raised more than $52,000. Thank you. And a huge thank you to our generous donors, Pete and Kathy Sittnick, for their matching gift.Building a love of reading sets children up early to succeed in school, and our program helps families build basic literacy skills together, which helps level the playing field for children in our partner communities. More than 2,700 children and family members will receive the support of a Book Coach and access to thousands of books in their digital library this year, and I hope you take great pride in knowing that YOU make this possible. Thank you for giving kids the power to read, dream, and succeed. 
Now for the winner of two roundtrip tickets, courtesy of Alaska Airlines, (drumroll …) congratulations to Matt Fukuchi—enjoy your trip!

I’m grateful to each of you for your generosity and support. Wishing you a safe and happy New Year.
