It' Takes A Village

Keep Our Kids Reading Program


SLHI Little Library

Our Library allows children to have convenient access to books anytime of the year. We keep our library stocked with books for all children to take and keep, or return to our library.  The goals of this program are to provide children with access to books and to grow home-based libraries.  

In the summer of 2020, we partnered with our local public library.  The library donated books to our program and to Christmas in July Curbside Book Giveaway.  We had over 120 visitors in attendance. We truly appreciate our community partners. 

Book Bag Project

Our program provides social workers in our community with a book and a bag for kids who are transitioning to out of home placements.  The goal is to get away from transporting children's belongings in garbage bags and give them a book as a gift to ease the transition.


Santa's Little Helpers Story Time 

Our virtual read-ins air on our YouTube channel.  The series is hosted by volunteers and guest artists.  This 15 to 20 minute story time series will feature various children’s books, songs and crafts. Please visit our channel at Santa's Little Helpers, Inc. YouTube channel.  Check out our first episode at below! 




Pajamas for Christmas Program

The longest standing program at our organization is the Pajamas for Christmas Program. We believe gifting new pajamas to foster children helps to build self-esteem and a sense of support from the community.  We provide children in residential facilities a pair of pajamas for Christmas. We have donated over 100 pairs of pajamas in the past two years.
