Literacy Partners — Menlo Park (LPMP) emerged July 15th as a new organization to expand your generous contributions to additional programs in the community.
“For 10 years our predecessor nonprofit, Project Read — Literacy Partners, helped support a single recipient, the Menlo Park Library’s Project Read program. Our new name, mission and bylaws will allow us to help more people, including the students and kids who previously were beyond the scope of our mission,” said Mike Goodkind, LPMP president." While we will continue to welcome contributions requested by the Menlo Park Library, we will welcome requests from other organizations as well," Goodkind announced.

“We are excited about our new mission as reflected in our website, and I’m particularly pleased that over the coming months you’ll be able to find here new opportunities to meet timely community challenges. We are seeking ways to help ensure that all local students will have a tablet or laptop and the internet access they need to continue learning even if their classrooms are shuttered. We hope to provide a forum and source of resources to support the broader needs of literacy in the Menlo Park community," Goodkind added.
Our new, expanded mission offers our community new opportunities to make a difference:
