The Shirley Proctor Puller Foundation is a 501(c)3 established in honor of the late Shirley P. Puller, a lifelong Pinellas county educator dedicated to inspiring and exciting underserved children to increase their reading skills to grade level and above.
Committed to advancing reading, math and science literacy and closing the achievement gap for children in South St Pete. In support of the Shirley Proctor Puller Foundation's varied initiatives to that end, we also collaborate with parents by providing free books and reading support to all children in our community.
"Every book deserves a child and every child deserves a good book."

After School Program
The after school program will provide a safe, after school academic environment to enhance the education scholars receive during school and incorporate our tutoring initiative to provide additional support.
Will engage scholars once a month in extra-curricular projects that expand their educational and cultural horizons while reinforcing good citizenship behaviors.
