Jim Miller Memorial Book Fund

THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends,

As many of you may know, my son, Jim served as a Jumpstart mentor to a five-year-old boy named Dylan, at a local Community Children Center in Pittsburgh, PA.

Jim was very involved and deeply devoted to the Jumpstart program and believed strongly in its mission. It was one more example of Jim’s commitment to social responsibility and service and how he championed those less fortunate than himself.

In response to Jim’s ardent spirit and commitment, the Jumpstart organization has established the Jim Miller Memorial Book Fund to provide limited edition books to classrooms in Community Children’s Centers throughout the Pittsburgh area.

While it has been nine years since Jim's passing, the work that Jim began with Jumpstart has continued to grow stronger each year and Jim's spirit is still felt throughout the organization and at the Hilltop Community Center where Jim served.

Last year, thanks to your overwhelming generosity and support, every child at the Hilltop Community Center in Pittsburgh where Jim mentored, as well as the other Jumpstart community centers in the Greater Pittsburgh area, received an individual book to read with their parent(s) through your contributions.

This year, our goal is simply to once again provide each child with his or her own book and to continue Jim's work in helping to develop and expand each child's love of reading at such an early age.

Every $10.00 contribution to this fund will provide a limited edition book, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach, for each child at the preschool centers in the greater Pittsburgh area where Jim volunteered.

 

Thank you deeply for your continued support.

Bob Miller and Family
