To all of our wonderful volunteers, it is great to see you again!
As students head back to school and Fall starts to settle in, we would like to take the time to acknowledge how grateful we are to all those volunteers who make a difference in their communities through their work with The Heart of America Foundation. We are entering into our busiest part of the season and that makes us reflect on all the wonderful, transformative work that our volunteers do. Our gratitude to all those we meet and make a difference with grows stronger with every project we finish together.
Whether it is work in a library makeover, or a book distribution with a read-aloud piece, the work you do as a volunteer and active member of the community inspires us. Your passion for literacy and helping those in need is a driving force that continually motivates our projects across the nation. After all, our mission to give children the tools they need to read, succeed and make a difference would not be possible without volunteers like you who are the real role models in the community.
The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

At The Heart of America Foundation, we strongly believe in how fortunate we are to meet professionals like you across the country. You display the type of dedication and compassion that creates great change in this world. No task that you do is too small to make a difference. Your donations, your time, your continued efforts to support the community truly spark positive changes around you. Children all over the country have books to read and comforting, colorful spaces to read them in because of your enthusiasm and commitment to volunteering.
This space is the heart of our school.’”

We often think back to previous projects from the last 16 years, and it delights us to think of all those volunteers who return time and again to give back to their community. It is truly amazing to reach out for support and find hundreds of hands reaching back, willing to aid us in our commitment to literacy and volunteerism.
For those volunteers who are just joining our cause, know that it is a special pleasure for us to see new faces amongst the returnees. Your involvement reassures us that the commitment to the community is continually renewed and you will be there to support their needs with excitement and passion.
The projects that The Heart of America Foundation completes could not be accomplished without the hard work from community volunteers and their constant dedication to making the lives around them better for years to come. From our heart to yours, thank you for the work that you do.
