About Promising Pages

Promising Pages serves tens of thousands of children every year, either directly, via our own book distribution programs or via our 30+ social service agency partners. Our revolutionary book up-cycling model works to better the lives and futures of children and families in our community. Every year we collect and distribute over 100,000 donated books. However, the books themselves mean nothing if they aren’t being read. Books are simply pages if they aren’t being leveraged by you, our true bookworms – people who care about our community, the families who are in it, and the children who are our future. You are the “promise in our pages.”
