Proceeds benefit the programs of Read to Grow, a Branford-based nonprofit literacy organization that works to build literacy and provide books for Connecticut children beginning at birth.

Read to Grow "builds early literacy for all Connecticut children from birth, when literacy development begins," the statement said." It is the only statewide organization to connect with parents in the hospital when a baby is born and provide the tools they need — children’s books and guidance — to take an active role in their baby’s literacy development and set their child on a path to success in school and in life. This year, Read to Grow reached 50% of all Connecticut newborns and distributed over 100,000 books statewide."
