Generous Book Donation from KPMG

KPMG is a tax, audit and advisory firm that has "a larger sense of purpose. Just as [they] serve the public trust, [they] also understand  the critical role of helping solve some of the worlds toughest, most complex problems" like literacy. They are a supporter of financial literacy but literacy in general and live up to their slogan, "cutting through the complexity." KPMG's Family for Literacy program has partnered with First Book (a non-profit book supplier that gives children in need access to new books) and have generously donated 50 books to our Welcome Baby program.

These book will be given to the children in our community through Ready to Learn classes and other programs offered by Welcome Baby United Way of Utah County. The book donated is called Little Critter: Just Saving my Money by Mercer Mayer. We are amazed by the generosity of our community and specifically KPMG. Many children in our community will benefit from the books donated.

Each of these books has this message from KPMG's Family Literacy Program:

Dear Reader,

At KPMG, we believe that reading and financial literacy are two import building blocks to success. We hope this book helps you develop both of these skills, which you will continue to use throughout your life. 

KPMG's Family for Literacy teams with First Book to put books in the hands of children across the country. Through our work together, we are pleased to bring you Little Critter: Just Saving My Money

With Our Best Wishes,
