One Book At A Time: Sponsor a Child with One Book a Month and Feed a Hungry Mind

When there’s not enough money in the house for food, buying your child a book is next to impossible. We here at Parnassus Books are thrilled to support Family-to-Family, Inc a national hunger and poverty relief organization's efforts to feed the "hungry minds" of children in need -- one book at a time! It works like this: Family-to-Family will match you to a child living in poverty in one of the many communities they serve, give you the child’s name, age and reading level, and ask you to send your assigned child one new book, along with a letter, each month. We ask that you commit to the program for one year, sending a total of 12 books and 12 letters. (The child will be encouraged to write back to you.) You might think about asking your own children to help pick out each month’s book – something they have read and loved! If you’d like to send books each month for several children in one family, or if there is a particular aged child you would like to help, Family-to-Family will try to accommodate! We've made it fun and easy for you too!  Once you've signed up with Family-to-Family's One Book At A Time program, check back in with us for a list of recommended books we think your One Book child will love!Join Family-to-Family's efforts: EMAIL  books@family-to-family.org with your name and address.We hope you'll join us and support Family-to-Family's One Book At A Time program because together, we can make a real difference!
