First Book is an impactful program aimed at giving books to children in need. ONA districts and local units purchase heavily-discounted, brand new books through AFT's First Book program to disburse to kids in our communities around the state of Ohio.
Being a volunteer is easy and truly joyful. Many of the children we encounter have never owned a brand new book before.
Volunteering for First Book events can mean transporting books, setting up book tables and handing books to kids.
We aim to have many First Book volunteers across the state to accommodate event requests from our community leader friends.
Many of ONA's districts and local units enjoy holding their own First Book events in their local communities. If you'd like to host your own event, just contact ONA and we'll supply the books!
