Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

Today was a literacy anniversary for the world and for us

We marked our third anniversary on this International Literacy Day – September 8th with the kick-off of a Magazine Harvest magazine recycling partnership at the Whole Foods Markets in West Windsor, New Jersey, near Princeton, and in Brighton just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Here we have three great volunteers – Katie Simmons with a wonderful young reader at the Brighton Whole Foods Market, and Mana Bahtt and Lauren Dymyd at the Princeton store.

The events where a huge success with lots of magazines collected from consumers that will be given to new readers in nearby homeless and domestic violence shelters, and in other local literacy programs. The bins will remain in the stores so that shoppers can drop off their magazines year-round.
