From March 3 until April 13, customers at Powell’s will be able to provide a brand new book for a SMART student by adding on $2.85 (the average cost of one book in our program) to their total at the check stand. Even better, Powell’s is matching all donations so “rounding up” by $2.85 becomes two new books for kids to keep!

Customers can also opt to make a donation in the amount of their choice, such as $40, which provides a full year of books for a child in SMART.

Here are some simple ways to help us spread the word:
