Our Leadership Committee

From day one our Leadership Committee has provided knowledge, resources and expertise to help us donate thousands of books and provide literacy programs the Los Angeles’ most vulnerable children and youth.

Collectively, we have been responsible for raising thousands of dollars, giving away thousands of books and creating Book Nooks and Story Corners all over Los Angeles. By pooling our talents and resources, we believe we can effect the most change.  Books can ignite and excite a love for reading and thus put children on the path to academic success.  It is our goal to provide that catalyst.
