Celebrate for a Cause

We support the learning of our students by providing nearly $1,000 worth of books and supplies to each classroom we work in.

Our classrooms thrive when they’re filled with supplies that drive pre-kindergartner through first-grade student reading progress, especially level-appropriate, culturally relevant books.

(Here’s our list of what’s most needed–and monetary donations are always welcome.)

You can help make sure that our partner teachers have the tools they need to support their students’ success by organizing a supply drive or including us in your next celebration.

  • Are you celebrating a birthday, a big milestone, or hosting a gathering of friends? You can make a significant impact by including Reading In Motion in the festivities and asking your community to join you in supporting our work–through an event or social media.
  • Take the lead on organizing a book and school supply drive as a way for your social, civic, church, or business group to serve a very worthy cause. Make Reading In Motion part of a giving-back day for your professional organization or school.

We’re open to your ideas, and our staff is here to help with any information or guidance you may need. Fill out our contact form and let’s get started!
