Spring Into Summer Reading is a unique opportunity for corporate sponsors to get noticed while helping us promote child literacy in our communities.
Here at the Saltwater Taffy Network, we are committed to a movement of child literacy and overall life potential for tweens. With over 178 school visits and 43,000 children nationwide, we are helping our kids become confident young men and women before they adopt bad mental habits.
To date, we have gifted 6,400 copies of Saltwater Taffy to title 1 elementary schools, youth baseball camps, at-risk and underprivileged children, because we believe the more a child reads, the more confident they become in life.
The mission began in 2011 with THE BIG GIVE. Starting in Nashville, Tennessee, we loaded up 2500 copies of Saltwater Taffy and hit the road. Battling 17 degree weather, we visited Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Nashville and The United Way in Memphis, Jackson, and finishing in Tupelo, Mississippi.
That adventure was followed up with The Partnership for LA Schools, a collection of Title 1 Schools in some of LA most challenging areas. From there, things began to “snowball” when we partnered with The Gary Sinise Foundation’s The Snowball Express, which is an event for children who lost a parent serving in our armed forces.
Spring Into Summer Reading will benefit Bellevue LifeSpring with the help of the Bellevue School District. To make this an unforgettable event, we need your company’s help!
