Book A Brighter FutureTM is a national partnership between Reading Is Fundamental, the nation’s oldest and largest children and families’ literacy organization, and Macy’s to raise awareness and support for children’s literacy. 

 

Since 2004, Macy’s and RIF have raised more than $13 million through the in-store promotion, which has had a profound impact on RIF’s mission. Macy’s has helped provide over 2 million free books to children served by RIF programs and has also donated more than 1,000 hardcover multicultural book collections to schools, Head Start centers, and libraries in every state and U.S. territory.

                                                                                                                                        

Macy’s will donate 100% of every $3 to RIF.  $1 will go to support a local RIF program, $1 will go to the Multicultural Literacy Campaign, and $1 will support reading resources for children nationwide.

 

 

        “Helping to open the minds and imaginations of children has never been easier.”

Law enforcement cannot dictate where an offender lives, as long as the offender registers his/her residence with the appropriate address and in compliance with state law. The work of a parole agent is to prevent sex offenders from future sexual victimization.

 

At this meeting, Parole Agent Villar from the California Department of Correctional and Rehabilitation will explain the process of how sex registrants activities are monitored once they are living in your community.
