Buy a Book for a Local Child: 5th Annual Ready to Read Book Drive
Friday, April 21, 2017
12:00 AM - 11:59 PM
Community Service and Civic Engagement
Ready-to-Read is an early literacy program that aims to get books into the homes of local families with young children. Ready-to-Read was started in 2011-2012 as a community learning initiative project, and then run by the Annual Community Events Staff (ACES) in 2012-2013. In 2014 a new student organization—Project PACKS—picked up and has continued the program with the same goals, and that is where you come in.
Each year, the program has provided a new age-appropriate book for every pre-k and kindergarten student at Kennelly School (located about one mile south of Trinity). Therefore, we are seeking donations of either money or books. If you wish to purchase a book yourself, Kennelly School has identified the following books as desired:
Pre-kindergarten (18): Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault
Kindergarten (69): The Three Ninja Pigs by Corey Rosen Schwartz
Donations are due by April 21, 2017. If you have any questions, need more information, and/or would like to learn more about Project PACKS (Providing Academic Change for Kindling Students), please contact Hayden Mueller at firstname.lastname@example.org or Becca Dedert at email@example.com.
Thanks in advance for your support.
