"We know that books are a critical resource for learning, and yet for an estimated 32 million U.S. children who are growing up in low-income families, books are scarce: at home, at school and in their communities," said , president and CEO of First Book. "Mo and have dedicated immeasurable time, effort, and resources to help us provide critical access to brand new books for classrooms and programs across the country. This match will extend our reach to include so many more children in need this back-to-school season. We could not be more grateful to Mo and Cher and their continued commitment to help inspire a love of reading."
