CURRENTLY ACCEPTING BOOK DONATIONS
THANK YOU to everyone who supported our 2022 book drive! We were able to collect over 3,000 books to benefit elementary school students in Ward 8 of Southeast DC with a reading proficiency rate of 11%. The Ward has twice the poverty and unemployment than the rest of Washington, DC. COVID has significantly hindered the learning of these students, who desire books of their own and really enjoy reading.
Without your generous support, we could not have helped so many students!
A special thank you to Huntington Learning Center, Great Dogs, and Thelo Greek for accepting donations during the book drive. Fantastic businesses that really support our mission.
