Our Program

THE KEY: READING STORIES TO YOUR CHILD!

OUR MISSION:

Raise the literacy level and overall learning skills of Rusk County children by providing a new book in the mail each month to all preschoolers. THAT'S LOTS OF BOOKS! TOTALLY FREE TO THE PARENTS.

THE PARENTS:

Register the child and read the books to them.

THE LOL:

Input names into the online data base in Tennessee, Pay the monthly book bill of ~$2/BOOK, and resolve any address changes or delivery problems.

DOLLY FOUNDATION:

Selects age appropriate books, assists with the cost, does all the heavy work of handling and mailing thousands of books each month . A total of over 7 million in 2010!

With upwards of 3000 preschoolers in Rusk County you can see the need is great! With limited funding, our first year goal is modest. We are starting by signing up all the newborns in the county. We now have 163 on board already and surpassed our first year goal of 150 !!.

We are confident that once the businesses of Rusk County become aware of the benefits and the positive impact of this literacy program on our community they will become strong supporters.
