Families across the Greater Los Angeles area have new books from local community organizations, thanks to our Launch Into Learning back-to-school national literacy campaign.
A special campaign distribution of 140,000 children's books was recently made to more than 120 nonprofits, government agencies, health clinics and schools. It was the largest one-day distribution in our history.
Over 200 "Helping Hands" volunteers from Molina Healthcare, a corporate supporter of the Foundation, joined us for the giveaway event held Aug. 27 at Downey High School. Additional volunteers from Beacon House of San Pedro and the Downey High School student KIWIN'S club also provided assistance. The teams of volunteers helped sort, box and load enough books to fill a library bookshelf almost a mile long.
A very special thank you to our friends at First Book for the donation of books.
The Molina Foundation is a national nonprofit organization focused on reducing disparities in access to education and health.
