Follett Supports Heart of America with Donation of 1,000 Books

September 04, 2013 · 60 Comments

Follett is proud to be a sponsor of the Heart of America Foundation's Books from the Heart book donation summer campaign, which puts books directly into the hands of children living in poverty across the country. Follett recently donated 1,000 books, helping the campaign achieve 67% of its goal. The campaign continues until September 21, and the organization aims to reach 50,000 books.

Since 1997, The Heart of America Foundation has provided a generation of children living in poverty with over 3.4 million books and revitalized more than 215 school libraries and education spaces across the United States. To advance its mission of providing children in need with the tools to read, succeed, and make a difference, the organization partners with school districts, community-based youth-serving organizations, and corporate sponsors like Follett. As we know, research proves that when kids living in poverty have access to books in school and at home, their vocabulary is enriched and they are more likely to succeed academically.
