Silicon Valley Gives campaign to benefit SSF

Your online donations will be matched on May 6th

Dear Friends,

On May 6th your online donation can be doubled by the first ever Silicon Valley Gives campaign. On that day, your donation will help support our mission to improve literacy skills in North San Mateo County.

We need you to help us with these three things:


  • 2.            Spread the word! Forward this email to your family, friends, book groups, and interested organizations. We are hoping to raise at least $10,000 for this important project!  You can make a big difference -just think if each of us gives $10 and we get 10 friends, associates to give $10 and they get their friends and associates to give we will reach our goal!


In light of the recent studies showing that the majority of our South San Francisco and Daly City youth are reading below grade level our libraries and their literacy programs are even more critical.


Double your dollars with matches up to $50,000 at these times!

About Project Read

Project Read provides free training four times annually  for new volunteers who wish to assist in this worthy literacy endeavor.  No experience is necessary, but a college education is usually a guarantee that new tutors have the ability to read and write well enough to assist others to achieve their literacy goals. The next training is set for late January 2014 at the library. If you are interested in pursuing this rewarding volunteer experience, please call the Project Read office at 650-829-3871 and speak directly to any staff member who can provide information on the next steps to take.
