I posted about this awesome program on my Facebook page awhile back, but am excited to share the details on how local families can receive FREE books thanks to Michigan Friends of Education. Such an amazing program
Michigan Friends of Education (MFE) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the community, especially for Michigan families who cannot afford to buy books for their children. The new book program makes it possible for families to get books for FREE. MFE believes that every child deserves an opportunity to learn, grow and fulfill their dreams. Therefore, this program is focused towards helping kids who struggle with reading or want to improve their reading skills.
“We worked closely with a variety of publishers and booksellers to make this program available to Michigan families,” said Menachem Kniespeck, president & CEO of MFE. “The response from families has been overwhelmingly positive. Our volunteers are working extra shifts to quickly get books into the hands of thousands of kids.”
How To Get Books For FREE From MFEfamily.org
Families may select as many as 14 books per order for free. The only cost is shipping charges along with a handling fee of just $2. The shipping cost depends upon the total weight of books, packaging and package size.
Who Is Eligible For The Program?
All Michigan is eligible for this program. There are no income qualifications; however, families grappling with household finances, or those who have struggling school-aged readers, are encouraged to visit the site.
What Kinds Of Books Are Available?
The free book program has a mix of chapter books, leveled-readers, study aids, and activity books at all grade levels. The inventory changes frequently as new books arrive on a regular basis.
Those wishing to make a contribution towards the Michigan community and make the future better for the kids can visit the website.
