Books for Students

One of the greatest ways to ensure children are reading by third grade is to make sure they have books at home. By following the link below you can help provide new reading material for our YCES students. It's simple, for just $2.50 a book or four books for $10 you can put a book in the hands of a child.

And, the best part? Between now and December 31st the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation will match the first 20,000 books donated, for a total of $50,000. So hey, you can help twice as many kids! It's fast, it's easy, it's secure. The donated books will be delivered to schools in early 2015.

So if you're so inclined (and we hope you are), follow the link, choose YCES from the list of elementary schools (we're at the very bottom!), and help build literacy in our community.

 And thanks!
