The Children's Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia is partnering with Hanford Mission Integration Solutions to provide a free bag of books to households in Benton and Franklin counties. The first 400 local families who register to take the Resolution Read Pledge (Reading together 20 minutes every day in 2024) will receive a bag of books.

Registration is open for 2024.

The program will provide a FREE bag of 12 books to local families (One for each month of the year). Once registered, your books will be delivered directly to your home this month. Please note that only one bag of books will be delivered per household. You must reside in Benton or Franklin County.

After 400 families have committed to the challenge, Communities in Schools of Benton-Franklin will donate another 200 book bags to low-income families in the area. The mission of the organization is "to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life."

At Communities In Schools of Benton-Franklin, we believe every student regardless of race, gender, zip code, or socio-economic background deserves the opportunity to write their own success story.
