2016 Accomplishments

 

As we work towards our goals for this year, we like to look back at what we accomplished last year. MagazineLiteracy saw fantastic growth in outreach in 2016, having donated nearly 122,000 magazines to agencies around the world.

We donate to mentoring and job training programs, food pantries, shelters, community centers, and foster care.

Here’s a look at the numbers from the Madison, WI, team:

Last year we brought 18 partners on board including:

We are thrilled to announce that we’ve added 14 additional agencies since Jan. 1:

We have also supplied thousands of magazines to Milwaukee Hunger Task Force and Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay, where they distribute to families in need.

We are always looking for partners to help us get magazines to those hungry to read, so if your organization is interested feel free to reach out to us! Send us an email at stephanie.robinson@magazineliteracy.org.
