We are proud to partner with hundreds of community agencies throughout the state to promote the program, enroll children and their families, conduct outreach assistance, create family reading events, and garner local contributions. Our supporters include Central Carolina Community Foundation, United Way of South Carolina, Families Helping Families, Low Country Head Start & WIC, First Steps, Hampton County Chamber of Commerce, Allendale-Hampton-Jasper Regional Libraries, childcare centers, and many others.
We also work with other local Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library affiliates in SC, such as our Begin with Books initiative in Charleston. MFBSC staff provides guidance in fundraising and enrollment support and technical assistance that includes an online organizing “toolkit”. As the statewide affiliate of the Imagination Library, we also enroll children when their community is not served by a local affiliate. This is particularly important in low-income and rural areas where there are limited capacity and resources for sustaining a program of this nature.
