GGAB IN THE MEDIA

What an honor to have been featured in City Lifestyle Magazine!

View the article below to learn how to continue the spirit of giving into 2023.

Thank you, City Lifestyle, for shedding light on the organizations that make a difference in our community on a daily basis.







NETWORKING FOR GOOD

200 attendees came to jingle and mingle at Exhib-it! Visual Concepts newest location.

Attendees donated canned goods that were gifted to The St. Felix Pantry and monetary donations were given to GGAB.

These donations directly support our mission of giving new books to children. Our ongoing partnerships with local pantries, such as St. Felix, play a key role in getting books to children that need them most!

NONPROFIT OF THE YEAR 2022

GGAB was awarded the Hispanic Heritage Award for Nonprofit of the Year 2022! The children are at the core of our mission and this recognition allows us the ability to further highlight the importance of youth literacy.









TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

GGAB's Founder and Executive Director, Sylvia Maser, has been featured in The Giving Stories. A book detailing 15 authors with 15 awesome causes, missions, and passions- it is a must have for your home library!

This book shares the stories behind heart-led nonprofit leaders and we are so proud of Sylvia for her contribution to this best selling book!



PARTNER APPRECIATION

Stride Inc., is a nationally recognized business for integrated employment of adults with Special Needs. Their team is an irreplaceable part of the GGAB mission. The love they put into each one of our packaged GGAB books is incomparable.

Thank you, Stride Inc., for all of the hard work and dedication you put into your work day in and day out!
