About Us

  • Since 2012, Texas Kids Read has been providing books to disadvantaged children and no cost to the parents or the schools they go to. We never charge.
  • Currently we support three Austin, TX Title I elementary schools: Pleasant Hill, Ortega , and Odom Elementary Schools.
  • More than 80% of the students in these schools live below the poverty level.
