Corporate Initiatives

LINC’s Corporate Initiatives promote the importance of civic participation and volunteer engagement. We infuse the joy of volunteering by cultivating meaningful connections and increasing our volunteers’ knowledge of the issues facing our city. 
 

LINC is a proud participant in Viacom’s Viacommunity Day. Viacom employees read to children at events like LINC’s Read for My Dreams day. We have also partnered with Target and Staples to support their community initiatives. Contact us to schedule your special event.

 

Book Drives

Individuals, corporate partners, publishers, community organizations and independent schools partner with LINC to collect books through volunteer-led book drives. Families in our neighborhoods of focus are able to build home libraries (maybe their first) to support reading routines and reinforce the importance of reading thanks to books LINC receives through these book drives. Contact us to find out how you can lead a book drive as a volunteer.
