2020 Charities & TCCS Beneficiaries
Donations & proceeds to benefit local charities around Tucson
Make Way for Books
MWFB is the primary beneficiary of the Tucson Classics Car Show. Their mission is to give all children the chance to read and succeed. Each year, the lives of 30,000 young children, families and educators are impacted through proven and powerful early literacy programs. Their innovative family literacy strategy is a two-generation approach where young children and parents learn together and both gain skills. Each week, children experience books, reading, and literacy activities that foster their emergent literacy and language skills. Families receive quality books each week to take home to build their home library. As a result of Make Way for Books’ programming, 98% of participating young children gain emergent literacy and language skills that are essential for school readiness and future successful reading.
