Help Get New Books to Kids Affected by Hurricane Sandy

As first-responders are working to provide these families with electricity, water, and other critical resources, First Book—in partnership with our local volunteers and partners—is raising funds to restock school and home libraries. After distributing more than 5 million books in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, we know new books can be valuable lifelines for those whose worlds have been turned upside down.

Your help will ensure that children in need will have new books - stories at bedtime, the chance to be transported to another world, and the opportunity to return to normalcy.

Every $2.50 you contribute will provide a new book to a child affected by the storm.

Now, your impact will be TRIPLED, as each gift of $2.50 will be matched not only by an additional book from First Book’s publishing partners, but by a dollar-for-dollar match from our friends at the American Federation of Teachers and the Albert Shanker Institute.

97% of donations provide new books for children in need. Print and mail form
