The Fort Worth business community raised more than $100,000 for the Classroom Library Campaign during a breakfast this week at the Fort Wort Club hosted by Darien George of Mackenzie Eason.

The Rainwater Charitable Foundation matched the day’s gifts, bringing the total contributions to more than $200,000.

The Classroom Library Campaign is a community strategy to advance early childhood literacy by placing 100 high-interest, high-quality and culturally relevant books in kindergarten through second-grade classrooms across the Fort Worth Independent School District, starting with elementary schools most in need. So far, the campaign has delivered more than 4,000 books to four elementary schools.

On North Texas Giving Day, Sept. 20, 100 percent of donations to Read Fort Worth will be used to purchase books, and every dollar donated will be matched by an anonymous donor.
