At WFTS, we believe giving children books can take them to new places, plant the seeds for future success, and help break the cycle of poverty. Children who lack access to a variety of books spend far less time reading, resulting in lower reading proficiency and struggle to complete high school.

Unfortunately, many children in low-income neighborhoods lack access to the books they need to become competent readers. Our annual “If You Give a Child a Book …” campaign, in partnership with the Scripps Howard Fund, puts books in the hands of these children.

Chick-fil-A is supporting our mission by making a $5,000 donation to our campaign.
