The GGAB APP features sight word flash cards and online children books.
Local Community Outreach Fall 2021- 500 backpacks with school supplies were given to help get students back to school.
A marvelous partnership between GGAB and Stride, Inc. developed in 2021. Stride’s special needs crew help package and label books that will be donated to children in most need.
In collaboration with local food banks and food pantries, GGAB has created a direct link to the children who can most benefit from our programs. Over 5,500 award winning books were distributed in every box of food to families in 2021.
It takes a team and the support of the community to make our mission possible. It is through partnerships and numerous personal donations that our mission thrives!
Thank you to all those who have given their support in our continued mission to help battle illiteracy in our children one book at a time!
