Books For Kids collects and distributes books to underprivileged youth in over 50 agencies and organizations throughout Oregon and SW Washington. Through grants, donations, and partnering with local companies to raise funds for book purchases (thank you Barnes & Noble Bookstores) we are able to purchase new books.

Through judicious purchasing, coupled with donated new books, our average cost of new books is kept between $2 and $3 each. We also collect both new and like new children’s books as donations from a variety of sources, including book drives and other donation programs.

Every Child Should Have A Book To Call Their Very Own!
