SFF and Raising A Reader Distribute Free Graduation Book Bags

Apr 23, 2013

The Sobrato Family Foundation has partnered with Raising A Reader—a Bay Area based grantee whose aim is to build literacy practices with pre-K through third grade students and their families. At the end of the school year kids graduate from the program, get connected to their local libraries, and receive a special book bag to use to carry their library books. SFF provided bags for 1,400 students in low-income communities in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties and loaded them with three bilingual books to celebrate their graduation—books recommended by SEAL, our comprehensive model of intensive, enriched language and literacy education designed for English language learners.
