Inspire Their Next Adventure
There is nothing quite like settling down with a good book and diving head first into a grand adventure. Unfortunately, not every child has the ability to fly away into some distant mystical land with every turn of the page. In low-income neighborhoods there is only 1 book per every 300 children; compared to middle-income neighborhoods where there are 13 books per one child. Help us address summer learning loss by Inspiring Their Next Adventure and keep our kids reading all summer long!

Be the Inspiration
Ainsleigh, a local eighth grader, is quick to express gratitude for her access to books.
“Some kids don’t get the opportunity to get an education,” she says. “I feel very lucky to go to the school I do and to be able to read and go to the library.”
When Ainsleigh’s father received an email from United Way of Greater Cleveland regarding an opportunity to “Stuff the Bus” with books, he knew the middle child of his five daughters would be inspired.
