Storybridge is a nonprofit organization dedicated to giving at-risk children access to quality, age-appropriate books to call their own.

Mission

Our mission is to meet and engage with our neighbors while bringing the joy of reading and the pride of book ownership to at-risk children in our community.

As each of us has received a gift from God, use it to serve one another.

1 Peter 4:10

What is the Need?

Research has shown that 2 out of 3 low-income families do not have a single children's book in their house. In Amarillo, we have 35 public schools receiving Title 1 funding. In those schools, the percentage low-income students ranges from 71 – 96%. This means thousands of children in our city have zero age-appropriate books of their own, making it exponentially more difficult for them to be successful in school.

At Storybridge, we have made it our mission to help Amarillo close this gap. We will serve as the bridge from overflowing bookshelves to empty ones. Join us and make an immediate difference in the life of a child!

How Can I Help?

Over 10,800 books delivered to Amarillo children since June 2016!
