Our Southwest Initiative Foundation office is full of activity today as staff and volunteers work to sort 8,000 children’s books.
We ordered these new books through a partnership with our Early Childhood Initiative and the Pearson Foundation to be distributed throughout our region. These books sell for $6 to $12 each, but we were able to purchase them for just $2.50 per book.
We know how important reading is for children’s learning and development. We’re so excited to get these books into the hands of southwest Minnesota kids!
