According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, over 14 million children live at or below the poverty level within the United States. Children in low-income families face many barriers to success impeding their ability to learn leading to social, emotional, and behavioral problems. One of these barriers is simply having access to age appropriate books within their homes.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community. Providing children’s books to families will offer these children a fun way to close the reading gap and help improve their academic success. We need your support to deliver books to children to help break the cycle of poverty.
Every donation to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program helps place a book into the hands of a less fortunate child. Thanks to your help and the support of The UPS Store, Toys for Tots Literacy Program has raised over $5.3 million and distributed over 42 million books to children and schools across our country.
