For the past 20 years, Ferst Readers has mailed books monthly to children, birth to five years old, in participating communities until their 5th birthday at absolutely no cost to their families. We are currently mailing over 50,000 books monthly to children in over 100 counties throughout eight states! The program is made possible through the local volunteer efforts of our Community Action Teams (CATs), who promote the importance of early literacy, register children, and find funding opportunities within their communities. Funding is provided through private donations, corporate sponsorships, and grants.
Want to know more about the Ferst Readers program or donate to a specific community program? Visit: www.ferstreaders.org. If you would like to help with a local CAT or get one started in your area so we may work together to bring the gift of literacy to every child, birth to five years old, call 888-565-0177 and ask to speak to a Regional Program Coordinator. Partnering together, we can help prepare every child for success in school and in life!
