Room to Read Delivers Books and Literacy in Collier County
Within Future Ready Collier’s foundational goals—early childhood development, school success, and planning for postsecondary school or career—there are essential connecting themes. One of these, literacy, has gained new support in Southwest Florida with Room to Read. Room to Read is a literacy organization with global reach and impact, having helped more than 32 million children in 21 countries. As a part of their goal to benefit 40 million children by 2025, Room to Read has been implementing programming in additional communities. Through a landscape analysis, the organization identified significant need in Collier County. Immokalee, Golden Gate City, River Park/Gordon River, Goodland, and Naples Manor were each identified as book deserts, meaning fewer homes have enough books to help children prepare for early education. To uplift Collier County children, Room to Read announced it will distribute 75,000 books in August 2022 to families in underserved communities.
