Speedway Children’s Charities Makes First Grant to Free Bookmobile

Speedway Children's Charities

We are thrilled to announce that Speedway Children’s Charities has welcomed the Free Bookmobile to its family of funded programs! The mission of Speedway Children’s Charities remains true to the ideals it was founded upon in 1982: To care for children in educational, financial, social and medical need in order to help them lead productive lives. Though the organization boasts chapters nationwide, the Sonoma group alone has distributed more than $4.5 million to over 185 Sonoma County youth groups since 2001!

Speedway funding will boost our efforts to reach 0-5 year-olds this year, and as digital devices become cheaper and compete for the attention of yet more youth, the timing of this award is excellent. We will use it to continue to inspire the youngest of our fellow citizens to read early and often, and to use those skills as a springboard to enhance learning, communication and collaboration over their lifetimes. Thank you, Speedway Children’s Charities, for helping us promote literacy and love of reading to the next generation!
