Our Mission: The Della and Lila Book Series was established to develop early childhood literacy, encourage creativity, and cultivate environmental and community service awareness in the minds of our youth. We promote love, kindness, and acceptance of others and ourselves. We are fully committed to the education and well being of children and families in southwestern Pennsylvania through special service programs and charitable donations.
ALL proceeds from book and merchandise sales go toward the “River Fund”. The River Fund provides educational and enrichment opportunities for children in southwestern PA. The River Fund also contributes to holiday gift drives, back-to-school supply drives, coat drives, and other charitable organizations that help children and families both in SWPA and all over the world.
Della and Lila work very hard to raise money and awareness for a multitude of local causes. They volunteer their time and energy for historical preservation purposes, scholarship funds, memorial races, litter clean-up programs, church functions, and youth sports groups.
