Buy a Book for a Child

Coronavirus Outbreak Update

We need your help to support children’s reading and learning at home. Please donate so that we can hand-out more books while children are out of school.

ReadStrong Pinellas is providing children with access to books and literacy materials while they are home from school.

  • Schools are expected to be out for several weeks during the outbreak.
  • We’ve connected with community and faith-based organizations to hand out books.

Research shows that children who receive their own books show a higher interest in reading and stronger reading skills.

Book Donation

ReadStrong Pinellas is reaching out to children across the county, many who never had their own books. We will be distributing books to children at ReadStrong family events and meetings, as well as at school and community sites.

Will you please help us reach the children who need books the most? Please make a donation to ReadStrong Pinellas of $5; $10; or other amount.

ReadStrong Pinellas is managed by R’Club Child Care, Inc., a Florida 501C-3 non-profit and your donations are tax deductible.
