As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Little Bit Foundation is committed to helping disadvantaged school children by creating a positive impact for personal growth, increasing self-esteem and encouraging a more focused and active learning environment. We do this by building strong relationships and partnering closely with St. Louis schools.
We do this by providing programs and services that are designed to serve the needs of the whole child in order to have a collective impact on his or her readiness to learn.
The Little Bit Foundation is currently in 20 schools, serving 6,000 children.
The 1-2-3 Read Book Fair is one of three Literacy Programs provided to the schools. At each fair, tables are setup to accommodate different reading levels and allow for self-selection of books that the child can be excited to read. We hold the fair each Friday morning at a different partnering school.
