Since our first event on January 9th, 2013, we have given away 150,000 books!!! With an average value of $5.00 per book, we have given away over $750,000.00 worth of books!!! We could not have done this without the generosity of our many valued supporters that help us keep our bookshelves full.
VISION: That children in every family have their own books at home so that they may become better readers, perform better in school and do better in life.
MISSION: Big Rig Books is a mobile literacy outreach initiative focused on fostering recreational reading beyond the classroom by encouraging reading and providing books for children and families in economically challenged, underserved communities and underperforming schools.
Emily was so excited this morning when she remembered you guys were coming. She was even more excited when she found a book I used to read when I was her age! Thank you for everything you do for these kids!!!
As a teacher and a parent, I really appreciate your mission. My daughter, Janaye, looks forward to Monday's when the Big Rig comes. As a teacher Isee the joy when my kids choose their book and are excited! We need more people like you in our community.
