THE STORY:

EAST SIDE HOUSE INC wrote -

It's so simple! Books breed knowledge. But in communities like the South Bronx, 6 in 10 kids don't have books in the home. Help us get books in the hands of these little ones and give them a shot at a brighter future!

East Side House's mission is to help families become self-sufficient by empowering them through education. One of the key predictors of educational and career success is reading proficiency. However, only 1 in 10 children in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the South Bronx read on grade-level by the end of the third grade. You can help change that.
