Right on target

Thanks to our incredible community, there is no shortage of ways to support New Haven Reads—from book donations and financial contributions to working directly with one of our amazing students.

Just this evening, for instance, Iota Chi Sigma will collect young adult and children’s books for NHR during a Founders’ Day event at 116 Crown. For the duration of this month, the University of New Haven CLR will collect books and school supplies to donate to our students.

And from now until January 5, 2020, you can help us spread the joy and power of reading by making a Target run. 

New Haven Reads is proud to be part of the nationwide Target Circle initiative:  a chance for Target patrons to earn votes as they shop and select a nonprofit to receive corporate donations from the store. We’re among a small group of regional organizations from which you can choose, and every trip to Target means another opportunity to vote! 

At check-out on a recent shop, we learned how easy it is to give through Target Circle—and that our impact at New Haven Reads reaches far and wide. “My nephew goes to New Haven Reads,” our cashier shared, “and he has grown so much as a reader. He has more confidence and more excitement about books than before.” 

We hope you’ll consider New Haven Reads with your vote next time you’re at Target. Thanks for all you to do help us spread the joy and power of reading!
