Tallahassee Chapter of The Links donates books to Head Start Program

The Tallahassee Chapter of The Links, Incorporated is proud to help close the literacy gap in the community by donating more than 150 books to the Capital Area Community Action Agency’s Head Start Program.

This service project was part of a nationwide 7,500 Book Challenge to support the 43rd National Assembly of The Links, Incorporated, being held virtually, and in Baltimore, Maryland, from June 29-July 3, 2022.

The Links, Incorporated joined national partners Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures (BSBF), Scholastic, Georgia-Pacific, and the We Can Do This campaign, to address early childhood literacy through a massive book challenge.

The goal was to donate at least 7,500 new or gently used reading and math books for pre-K-3rd graders to Head Start Centers throughout the United States and comparable sites in the Bahamas and United Kingdom. However, the number of books donated nationwide was over 30,000 books to over 271 Head Start classrooms.
