Please join us as we celebrate charitable giving during our Annual Christmas Giving Breakfast.
Our recipient will be The Clackamas Bookshelf
The Clackamas Bookshelf is Primarily donation based, The Clackamas Bookshelf provides free books to low-income children in the Clackamas County community with the understanding that children having widespread access to books offers positive and long-term benefits to the entire community.
Not only do they strive to get new books into the hands of every child in the community, but specifically place focus on obtaining diverse books with representation of all children. They aim to make sure that a child can pick up a book and see themselves represented on the cover; whether that be skin color, blended families, having two moms or two dads, disabilities, religion, or removing the society gender biases in areas such as STEM, math, and fashion with positive representation in all job fields.
To date, they have given 150,000 (and counting!) free books to children in the Clackamas County. Statistically speaking, students who are not proficient readers by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school, and in Clackamas County alone, 47.8% of 3rd grade students are not reading at their grade level. The vision for The Clackamas Bookshelf aims to change that forever, and that change begins with a book.
Registration is required, seating will be limited.
