What a great program! It's so easy to get involved. Here's what is needed most:
- new or gently used and appropriate for children birth – 12
- Titles like Curious George, The Magic Treehouse, Charlotte’s Web, and bilingual books are appreciated
The 2016 WAKE UP AND READ book drive for Wake County has started. The drive however is far short of its goal of collecting 110,000 books that it needs to give to diasadvantage students. If you want to help there are many ways and you can start by going to this link WAKE UP AND READ
The web site for WAKE UP AND READ has the information for donating books as well as how to donate your time which is always in short supply with these type of drives. Volunters are needed now and through June 9, 2016 to help students select books that are appropriate for them.
I know my grandchildren love to check out books from the library but these books are different. How are they different? They are different because a child gets to choose a book and take it home with him. Sometimes this is the first time a child owns a book. Imagine the joy and look on the their face as the realize that is a book they can keep and read over and over again.
Remember you don't have to volunter for the whole time period just for what you can. The children of Brentwood Estates in Raleigh would be very happy for your donation of time and effort as would I. There are a total of ten elementary schools where these books are going and Brentwood Elementary is one of them. Remember even if you don't live in this area you can still donate books and time.
