Thank You for Supporting First Book Portland in 2021!

Thanks to all who contributed to our year-end fundraising drive! We raised $1,095 during the campaign, for a total of over $26,000 in 2021. That’s enough to provide 8,800 books to children served by local organizations such as Latino Network, LifeWorks Healthy Families Hillsboro, and Mount Hood Community College (MHCC) Early Head Start.

Because of your generosity, we are well-positioned to fulfill more of our current requests from recipient groups as well as start from a strong financial foundation for our 2022 books grants!

As the pandemic continues, your support is vitally important to help children across our community build home libraries. Please stay tuned for upcoming events and news as we look forward to a new year, together supporting our community’s children by helping them have access to books and to grow as lifelong readers.
