You don't need a cape to be a hero to disadvantaged children in our area. All it takes are good organizational skills, the ability to persuade friends, colleagues and family to donate children's books and a way to deliver the collected books to Reach Out and Read's offices at KU Medical Center. Do that and you will be a super book hero to hundrends of kids across Kansas City!
Book Drive Coordinators of all ages can work on their own or organize a team of volunteers to collect new and gently used children's books that will then be given to at-risk children in one of the 50 Reach Out and Read Kansas City (ROR-KC) safety net pediatric clinics in the KC metro area that serve low income communities.
Great for groups but we also welcome individuals interested in coordinating a drive.
