Powerful Pages Puts Books in the Hands of Children

Newsletter

Books hold a special place in our hearts, in our business and, we believe, in children’s hands.

That is why Domtar created its Powerful Pages program—to promote literacy by providing books to children who may not otherwise have access to a rich library of stories.

This takes many forms, usually through partnerships with other nonprofits that are widely recognized for their dedication to literacy. Also in 2016, many of our Pulp and Paper division vendors joined us in a special initiative focused on elementary schools.

By Anne Wintroub, Director of Social Innovation, AT&T
Blog

For me, summer means memories of warm stretched-out days at camp, popsicles for lunch, and reading for hours on end. Now that I’m the mother of a rising 4th grader in the information age, it means that and more – an opportunity for him to learn new skills and retain those he learned last year, so he doesn’t experience the “summer slide” that affects so many students. The summer slide is the loss of knowledge that kids experience when they take a break from their academic routines.
