According to the Handbook of Early Literacy Research, more than 80% of child-care centers serving children from low-income households don't have age-appropriate books available for kids. Spread the Word Nevada fosters early childhood literacy by distributing books to children in Southern Nevada's low-income, at-risk communities, in addition to providing language- and reading-development opportunities to help them succeed academically.
Through the Kids to Kids literacy program, Spread the Word Nevada works with book distributors to purchase gently used and new books and distributes them to children in 24 Clark County elementary schools. In the last decade, Kids to Kids has donated more than one million books to these schools. Participating schools have noted an increase in the number of students who meet or exceed reading standards, which can lead to greater academic and economic success for these children.
Join G-Team and donate $4 to help Spread the Word Nevada distribute books to elementary schools within Southern Nevada's low-income communities. If G-Team members raise $200, then Spread the Word Nevada's Kids to Kids literacy program can distribute 100 books to at-risk children. Each additional $4 raised will be used to buy another two books.
