Partners Needed for Author Visit Program for Schools
Our Author Visit for Schools partners are businesses, organizations, and individuals who believe in the value of literacy and history education. Created at the request of area teachers with limited budgets, this program enables sponsors to provide Teresa's writing workshops, history assemblies, and a classroom set of Home-Front Heroes books to each school.
Contact us to learn how Teresa can deliver an in-person or virtual visit to any school of your choosing, or to support a school that has requested a visit.
Send a Home-Front Heroes School Kit
Support literacy and history education in our schools by becoming a sponsor of the Home-Front Heroes School Kit program. This program provides classroom or reading group sets of Teresa's books, along with teaching materials and a gift for the students to schools across the country. We've donated kits to more than 100 grateful teachers, and can send kits to any school you choose.
Bonus - make a donation in honor of a family member from the World War II generation. All honorees are featured on our WWII Honorees wall and shared with the students in the form of a flyer.
You can click here to sponsor a kit.

Support The Great Book Giveaway
Every year, Teresa visits organizations that work with at-risk, low-income, and Latino families at their holiday parties to hand out and sign free books for their families. It's her favorite activity of the year! If you'd like to help ensure kids have their very own books to read and own, please contact us.
