Literacy Champion – Dennis Salazar

MagazineLiteracy.org sits in a sweet spot at the center of consumer love of magazines, our passion to help children and families prosper, and our desire for a clean environment and eco-friendly, sustainable commerce.

Our Magazine Harvest inspires citizens to read, recycle, and reuse their magazines.  Magazines collected in homes and schools, and at work and public locations are delivered to new readers – children and families in homeless and domestic violence shelters, teens in mentoring programs, job trainees, and to families in bags of groceries from food pantries.  This gets magazines into the hands, hearts, and homes of children and families hungry to read them.

Our work is made possible and grows every day thanks to the support and engagement of literacy champions like Dennis Salazar at Salazar Packaging.  Dennis has made his eco-friendly cardboard totes available to our Magazine Harvest teams and is helping us to spread the word about our literacy work.  Dennis is an expert on sustainability.  Take a look at his blog and join us in thanking the Salazar Packaging team for helping us to fill our magazine literacy pipeline.
