The first 250,000 books will be provided to children this holiday season, thanks to support from Macy’s. To further engage parents and their children, winter activity sheets are available through RIF’s website, which can serve as the perfect distraction on a snowy day.
The remaining 750,000 books will be dispersed nationwide before next year’s summer break.
First Book is thrilled to partner with RIF to provide so many books to kids in need. Kyle Zimmer, CEO and President of First Book, said:“We’re grateful for the chance to put brand-new books into the hands of children at so many RIF programs, and we’re thankful for the hard-working teachers and program leaders who make it all possible.”
