The more kids read, the better readers they become! With your generosity, we can send a bright, beautiful new book home for the summer with 1,000 pre-K through 1st grade children served by Blessings in a Backpack Frederick.
Join our organization, Curious Iguana, the Literacy Council of Frederick County, and Frederick County Public Libraries to:
- Put books in the hands of children who need them.
- Combat “summer slide” in reading skills.
- Ensure that more kids are ready to read and succeed when school starts this fall!
