Project BookBag

Dedicated to ensuring that all children have books in their homes!

Because  having books in the home is even more important to a child's success than parents'  income or education level!


Find out how we got started and see the excitement when the  "book ladies" come to school!

About Us

How We're Helping

We are a group of volunteers who believe that every child deserves a chance to experience the joy of reading and the success that a good education can bring.  We have adopted an inner city public school whose extraordinary teachers and remarkable students have done such a good job that all of the students are reading at or above grade level. We work to support their success by providing kids with books to take home and call their own. 

Get Involved

There are so many ways you can help.  Do you have gently used books to donate?  Work for a company that matches donations or would like to provide BooksBags?  Can you donate some money? As little as $20 enables us to buy 15-20 books! Are you interested in helping us sort and package the books?   Please contact us to discuss how we can work together to enrich the lives of children and give them the skills they need to succeed in life.

Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
