       CACM’s Book Drive will run through Friday, July 27, with the final drop-off location at

CACM’s annual Statewide Expo & Conference at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, Calif.

       According to Karen Conlon, president and CEO of CACM and co-chair of the Women’s

Philanthropy Fund, early literacy programs have proven to be an effective way to improve language

development and reading and retention scores for young people. These programs can bridge the gap for

students who did not have access to preschool or other pre-K school readiness programs.

       “Research shows that children need at least 25 books in the home to significantly increase their

chance of academic success,” Conlon said. “CACM is proud to be a partner in this very worthwhile

program and to offer an easy way for people in California to help us achieve greater literacy statewide.

We look forward to working with Think Together to help disadvantaged children achieve that success.”

       Conlon said all books will be donated to the United Way, which will clean and prepare the books

for distribution through Think Together. All donations are tax deductible. For more information on

CACM’s Book Drive, please go to www.cacm.org or call 949-916-2226.
