'Tis the Season of Giving!
The Blue Ridge Partnership for Children strives to enhance the lives of young children and support their families to ensure a strong foundation for learning. Some of our services include: Play & Learn groups, Child Care Resource & Referral, Parenting Education opportunites, Blue Ridge Healthy Families and others.
One of our best known programs is Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. This book gifting program mails a FREE book to an enrolled child every month through their 5th birthday. If a child is registered shortly after they are born they will begin kindergarten with a personal library of up to 60 books. The books are free to the families but as the non-profit affiliate to the Dollywood Foundation, the Blue Ridge Partnership for Children pays for the monthly mailings. $30 supports 1 child's participation in the program for a year. 1800 children in our three counties are currently receiving books from Imagination Library.
