The Tommy Two Shoes Literacy Project for Children Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, where our main goal is to help encourage literacy in children in preschool and elementary school. We accomplish this by partnering with teachers and local businesses to help provided students with their own personal books to take home.
Our program works by having teachers, principals, or parents fill out our simple questionnaire requesting our support. We follow up with local businesses interested in partnering with us to help sponsor the school in need and get free books into each student’s hands.
We coordinate with our partnering publishers to than print the sponsors’ logo and address inside each book as a form a token of appreciation.
As part of the community outreach, sponsors than get to visit the school and hand the students a copy of the book. Students, teachers and local businesses than engage in the “Read Day Assembly” where each student goes home with their personal copy of their new book; a triple win for everyone involved.
