Ways To Give to Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read Greater Philadelphia solely relies on donations and support from schools, community groups, corporations, families, and individuals to maintain this valuable program, through fundraisers and book drives. Below are some ways to help and click here.

Donate much needed funds

DONATE NOW

When you donate funds to Reach Out and Read, your dollar is going the furthest it can go to get brand new books into the hands of eager children. Because we purchase books in bulk from publishers, your dollar provides many more books when you give it to Reach Out and Read than when you purchase the books in retail venues.

Host a book drive

Most Reach Out and Read sites are in need of appropriate gently used children’s books for the literacy rich waiting rooms and exam rooms. Consider hosting a book drive at your office, an elementary school, your book club or other places! However, due to COVID-19, there are changes in our needs and RORGP sites cannot accept used book donations until after August. Please contact us for the current guidelines.  Thank you for your understanding. Email info@reachoutandreadphilly.org or call 215-590-5989 and press 3 for more information.

Donate gently used children’s books

Before COVID-19, most Reach Out and Read Greater Philadelphia sites could accept donations of gently used children’s books so the healthcare staff can promote literacy to more children and families and give them books to take home, keep and enjoy. However, due to COVID-19, there are changes in our needs and RORGP sites cannot accept used book donations until after August. Please contact us for the current guidelines.  Thank you for your understanding. Email info@reachoutandreadphilly.org or call 215-590-5989 and press 3 for more information.

Volunteer as a reader

Adult volunteers (over 18 y.o.) are based in the waiting room at the primary care health center to read aloud with children of all ages, model book-sharing techniques and show by example that reading aloud is fun for parent and child.  Each Reach Out and Read site’s health organization has its own volunteer application guidelines.  However, due to COVID-19, volunteer opportunities at the Reach Out and Read sites are on hold until further notice. Call 215-590-5989 and press 1 for more information or learn more about volunteering here.
