The mission of Books to the Rescue!™ is to COMFORT KIDS IN CRISIS. All across America, this non-profit, community-engagement program is touching the lives of children while simultaneously promoting literacy. The first Books to the Rescue!™ program began with over one hundred Greene County, Ohio Police Cruisers in 2015 and now serves as the model program nationwide that’s reaching beyond Cruisers into FireTrucks and EMS, Domestic Violence Units, Hospitals, Court Systems, Victim Advocacy Centers, Foster Care, and many other agencies.
