Project  Grow


The Project Grow children’s book giveaway program is intended to promote early literacy in our local area, to show support for the future of our community and its children. Literacy is essential component to success in education and life. All children have the right to a bright future; it is my hope that through Project Grow, Kinder Beginnings can give our children a small token of that promise.

"Planting seeds of literacy to raise future readers"


Open to all families residing in Hocking County with children age 6 and under.
