Summer break is broken for many kids in rural America
Summer break can mean no more regular meals, no friends nearby to play with and zero access to books.
That's why Save the Children works to reach those children who are missing out most. Thanks to support from partners and donors like you, we’re able to give kids in the U.S. books and resources, social/emotional support and healthy food.
Join us today and help make summer fair.

SummerBoost gives vulnerable kids skill-building play, math and reading help - plus healthy food. But it’s just one way Save the Children helps during the long summer months.
We offer bookbag exchanges to keep kids reading. We help deliver food in hard-to-reach communities. And KinderBoost helps get young children ready for school.
With Amazon, we’re going the last mile for kids, distributing over 100,000 books and backpacks to deliver opportunity to kids in rural America to help Make Summer Fair. We know that a backpack is more than a bag; it’s an opportunity for kids to share their identity, improve their literacy skills and boost their confidence by feeling prepared for school. Together, Amazon and Save the Children have your back!
