Volunteer in Jill’s Literacy League
Here at The Literacy Cooperative, we believe that the books mailed to children each month each represent a tiny act of kindness. Multiply the number of books by the number of times each one is read by a child or their caregiver and all of these combined, done in Jill’s memory, represent a massive ripple of resilience, brain-building, kindness, and literacy development in our community.
We need help making sure that Imagination Library books get into the community! If you can spare a few hours here and there, we’ll work with you to find the best jobs to do.
- Removing wrapping and labels from returned books
- Stuffing envelopes (welcome mailing)
- Troubleshooting assistance – making calls for clarification on problem enrollment forms and for returned books
- Staffing table at special events – to promote enrollment and spread the word
