Capital One will work together with Communities In Schools and First Book to disseminate these new books to children and schools most in need.“Promoting literacy and providing access to books at a young age is one of our best tools in helping disenfranchised kids see that they have options in life,” said Dan Cardinali, President, Communities In Schools. “Working with Capital One, we are able to help more students realize their own path to success in school and in life.” The Book by Book grand prize custom children’s home library, valued at over $17,000, includes 150 age-appropriate books to stock the shelves in the winner’s beautiful new space.
