Our Impact

Through its programs, ReadBAMARead has visited 13 schools and impacted more than 5,000 students. Some of the visited schools include Tuscaloosa Magnet School, Verner, Matthew, Alberta, Northington, Crestmont, Westwood, Skyland, RQES, TR Simmons Primary, Brookwood Elementary, Taylorville Primary and Moundville Elementary. RBR wants to keep visiting more schools across the city and county.

RBR hosted the “I Read Because” contest during Fall 2017 and awarded three schools with $7,500. The awarded schools were Tuscaloosa Magnet Schools, RQES and Arcadia Elementary School

In 2018 RBR Tuscaloosa City Middle School Shopping Spree was $25,000, giving $5,000 to
each middle school.

Since 2011, RBR has reached the lives of more than 20,000 students in Tuscaloosa and supported the community with more than $150,000 in funding and books.

A Cause Worth Supporting

Our goal is to replace more than 280,000 school library books that were destroyed by the tornado. Your donation of $15 for the purchase of one book will help change the life of a child, and the donation of $300 for the purchase of 20 books can change the lives of a classroom of young minds. Donations of $300 or more will be identified on our website with company logo or family name in appreciation!  Thank you all for your generosity and ReadBAMARead!

Please email your PayPal donation receipt to Donna@ReadBAMARead.org to be included on our donation partner page with donations over $300. We will contact you for your logo or family name for addition to our Partner page.
