News Bites: Help Hurricane Sandy’s Victims

Books for devastated libraries: Hurricane Sandy devastated scores of schools and libraries across the East Coast. You can help provide books for these libraries and children in need by making a tax deductible donation of at least $2.50 to First Book. Every $2.50 you donate will buy one book. First Book’s publishing partners—Random House, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, Abrams Books, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Macmillan, Candlewick, Sterling, Hachette, and others—will match each contribution by donating an additional book.

Founded in 1992, First Book provides new books to children in need. To date, the organization has distributed more than 90 million free and low cost books in thousands of communities.
