About Rita Wiltz

Rita Wiltz, Founder and Executive Director of Children's Books On Wheels (CBOW), established the mobile non-profit organization in 2004 to bring reading to children in all areas that may not have access to books. Seventy five percent of the population served by CBOW are below the poverty level. Wiltz and her team are mobile and travel to community events, churches, businesses, and other non-profits in north, south, east and west counties. The after-school site at the Sleepy Hollow Multipurpose Building for the YMCA is hosted by CBOW. Summer Reading Projects donate books to children and their families at no cost. Each year over 9,000 books are distributed. Over 7524 hot lunches were distributed in May through July 2020 through a collaboration with Meals on Wheels of Montgomery County for families affected by COVID-19.
