We know that food is a basic need for children and will always be our first priority. We also know that literacy is a stepping stone out of poverty.
In December, we accept “gently loved” books from members of our community, sort them by age group and wrap and distribute them to the elementary school students that we serve.
Be watching the Current Events page for the big wrapping event in December! Last year, we wrapped over 1500 books in just a few short hours!
In May, we get specific reading levels from the teachers of the children we serve and purchase FOUR brand new books for each child. We have received positive feedback from teachers on this program and plan to continue providing quality books for those we serve.
Be watching the Current Events – we will need help unpacking, sorting and labeling these books in May!
