Codding Foundation Makes Seventh-Year Grant Toward Free Bookmobile Family Services
Written by admin, March 9th, 2019   

Codding Foundation

Our deepest gratitude goes once again to Codding Foundation, which has just made a seventh consecutive-year grant in support of our work helping children become literate, lifelong learners. As digital options for filling time saturate the landscape, it is more challenging than ever to keep kids focused on things that are healthy for their intellectual development. Fortunately, the Free Bookmobile is a totally unique temptation! With the help of long-time partners like Codding, we are able to offer great books-of-choice on myriad subjects to children of all ages. It’s a treasure hunt every time they come on board, a fun and engaging experience that convinces kids to set aside the phones and other devices for a while. It just works!

Established in 1961 as part of Hugh Codding’s legacy, the Codding Foundation has consistently supported local agencies that help Sonoma County youth and families. President Connie Codding has been very active in local philanthropy for a number of years, which includes service on the boards of PDI Surgery Center, Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific Board of Advocates in Sonoma County, Sonoma Paradiso Foundation and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Sonoma State University. Thank you, Connie, for all you do for our community!
