EWI is proud to support Page Ahead and their initiative to promote literacy to local children that are in a school with 65% free or reduced lunch. This means that a majority of children receiving these services are coming from low-income households. It is our hope that you will join your EWI colleagues in collecting new books for the kids they serve. You can always bring new books to our meetings or give them to a member of EWI. We will make sure all donated books are delivered to Page Ahead.
Our 2017 goals for our Page Ahead campaign will be to donate $250 and to collect books for the 2017 program. We will continue to collect books throughout the year to be given to Page Ahead for next years campaign.
Literacy is the foundation to success for all children. If they don’t reach the standard level of reading by the 3rd grade, research shows that they will never catch up. Help us make sure all children in the State of Washington has the opportunity to succeed!
To date, EWI Seattle has provided nearly 1000 books and has raised over $6,500!
