Raising Readers, Creating Opportunities!

Your Support Helps Children Receive Books

Books with Mailbox

1. Donate

RRITH’s partnership with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free books to children from birth to age five who reside in Polk County, Iowa.

It costs $25.00 per year to provide books to each child. Individuals and businesses are needed to support the program to increase reading, literacy, and the love of learning. Your donation is tax deductible and helps RRITH provide books to all children, regardless of background or income.

Individual donors fill out the form here.

2. Sponsorship

RRITH partners with local businesses who are interested in becoming sponsors for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program as well as the extended program for children from ages 6-10. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact: Jill Friestad-Tate, President questions@rrith.org
