Founded in 1997, The Heart of America Foundation (HOA) began with one mission. To “teach the values at the heart of America and help people, particularly children, learn that they help themselves when they help others.”
Combining volunteerism and literacy, the focus of HOA is to provide children in need everywhere with the tools to read, succeed and make a difference.
Just walk into the library of a school that has benefitted from a READesign from Heart of America. The READesign® Library Makeover program engages volunteers, especially local youth, as well as corporate team members and other members of the community, in service and community involvement through library beautification and improvement activities, book distributions and one-on-one reading activities with children. The project provides tangible results in the form of a revitalized library, as well as the intangible results of engaging people in caring, compassionate community service to children in need.
Paragon has been a proud supporter of the READesign and is taking the commitment one step further. Now you contribute to Heart Of America every time you buy a READ-IT table. The generational friendly reading table that is part of our acclaimed Intuitive line, will be our flagship for promoting literacy.
We can’t think of a better organization to support.
