Books Books Books

My daughter is putting on a book drive for a small school in Florida. This school is in the second poorest county in Florida and they are in need. 90% of the students in this school qualify for the free lunch program.

The goal is to collect 400 new or gently used books, one for each student. The grades are K-5th, books for young readers is what we are collecting.

If you would like to help leave me a post and I will contact you and give you more information. I think this will be an easy goal to reach with your help.

We would love to help! My sons, ten and five, have plenty of extra books that are great and we would be happy to share! We will watch for more info so we'll know where to send them. In the meantime we will forward your info to lots of amazing people. You're both wonderful!
