To teach the values at the heart of America and to help people, particularly children, learn that they help themselves when they help others.
The Heart of America Foundation, a national nonprofit headquartered in Washington, D.C., uniquely promotes volunteer service and literacy. The organization inspires acts of service and a love of reading by building community and providing children in need with the tools to read, succeed and make a difference.
Committed to education and volunteerism, The Heart of America Foundation engages volunteers through putting books into the hands of children who need them the most. Through the Books From The Heart and READesign programs, The Heart of America Foundation revitalizes school libraries and reading spaces in under-resourced communities into vital and vibrant centers of learning that become the heart of a school.
Since 1997, The Heart of America Foundation has provided children living in poverty with over two million library and take-home books. And, the organization has engaged volunteers in more than one million hours of service to communities nationwide. www.heartofamerica.org
