Learn about our Read 3 program and how you can help improve child literacy in Texas. Plus, see special kids' activities.
Reading is a vital part of a child's learning experience. The tough reality is that not all Texas children have access to books in their homes. In 2011 H-E-B launched Read 3 to help the 507,000 Texas children who are not read to on a regular basis.¹ During the last year, 1 Million new or gently used children's books have been collected for children in need. This year, we plan on matching that goal.
If your organization or event has a need for books, please complete the H-E-B Request for Book Donation process.
