Phoenix Comicon Wants to Fill The Page Coach with Books for Disadvantaged Children!
Join Phoenix Comicon in a celebration of imagination and the wonders brought to children through reading!
Phoenix – Phoenix Comicon is asking supporters to help fill The Page Coach with fantastic books and stuffed animals for children by contributing to this exciting fund drive! All contributions raised through the Phoenix Comicon Page Coach Challenge will be utilized toward Kids Need to Read’s mobile outreach literacy programs for disadvantaged children living in the Phoenix metropolitan area, as well as other Arizona locations.
The Page Coach provides a unique mobile outreach program, one that quite literally sets the wheels in motion for enhanced community impact with a customized vehicle designed to bring the Kids Need to Read experience to children living in the lowest socioeconomic areas. Delivering books and interactive literacy events directly to Boys & Girls Clubs, transitional homes, recreation centers, libraries, and other community organizations that need literacy support most, each stop along the Page Coach’s route forges uniquely personal bonds between Kids Need to Read and the young minds its programs have long strived to benefit.
“This year the proceeds from the first one hundred Phoenix Comicon Fast Passes are being donated to Kids Need to Read and since we have already met that threshold we are eager to see what other support we can bring to this great charity”, says Phoenix Comicon Marketing Director, Jillian Squires.
Contributions can be made by accessing the PageCoach Fundraising Page! Additionally, you can learn more about the organizations behind this campaign by visiting KidsNeedtoRead.com or PhoenixComicon.com! Thank you in advance for all of your support!
