The UPS Store® network and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation team up to provide books to less fortunate children through the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.
Throughout the month of December, for every post sharing a children’s book with #ReadItForward, The UPS Store will donate $1 to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program (up to $50,000). Now is a great time to get involved.
Take a selfie with your favorite children’s book and share it on Instagram, or simply tweet its name. Be sure to include #ReadItForward to qualify for a donation!
Still feeling generous? No problem: you can donate directly to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program right here!
Help us ensure tomorrow’s kids get the books that will make a difference in their lives.
Help us #ReadItForward.
Launched in March 2008, the Toys for Tots Literacy Program is the first year-round initiative of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and offers the nation’s most economically disadvantaged children the ability to compete academically and to succeed in life by providing them direct access to books and educational resources that enhance their ability to read and to communicate effectively.
As sponsors of the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, participating The UPS Store locations keep a coin box on their front counter throughout the year for customers to donate their spare change. Then, during November and December, participating locations will sell donation cards.
One-hundred percent of all proceeds go to support local children and literacy programs. Every dollar helps put a book into the hands of a local child in need!
The UPS Store, Inc. and its network of more than 4,500 The UPS Store locations across the U.S. are the exclusive sponsors of the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.
Thanks to your support, more than $3 million has been contributed to the program since its inception, helping to deliver books to children across the country.
