BEGIN WITH BOOKS is Charleston County’s premier early literacy program, and we are proud to have been working with Charleston Housing Authority since we opened service on Charleston Peninsula in January 2013. BWB distributes FREE monthly books by mail to babies and toddlers from birth through age 4, in order to encourage caregivers to read more often with their youngest children and grandchildren, and to enable pre-school family literacy activities in the home.
There is $500 to match donations. $33 will provide a child 1 full year of books each month. At completion,this fundraiser can provide 30 children with new books for a full year
The organization participates annually in Community Resources Day, the Spoleto Jazz event at Robert Mills Manor, the MOJA block party, and has partnered on other initiatives to make books-by-mail programs available to the residents of Charleston County.
