Last month we introduced you to our monthly Denim for Donations program in which we raise money and/or donations for a local charity.
The Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to nurture a love of reading and writing among children throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. Since 1998 CLiF has served more than 75,000 children in more than 320 communities across every region of the Twin States.
CLiF targets two groups of children from birth to age 12:
1. Children in rural communities where resources are limited
2. Children who are at high risk of growing up with low literacy skills
Through 15 free programs, CLiF serves young readers and writers who have the greatest needs including: children in shelters; children in low-income housing; children of prison inmates; refugee children; migrant children; children from low-income families; children in Head Start; children in communities undergoing severe economic challenges; and many other at-risk youth.
Please consider making your own donation of either money or books.
