Do you remember your favorite book as a child? Dr Seuss said it best "The more that you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you'll go!" Research shows that kids in generational poverty do not have the same opportunities as other students to interact with books at home.
Our school, Mission Ave, has asked us to partner with them in providing books for our students. This is a great opportunity for you to make a difference and get plugged in to the mission of Shine at Mission Ave.
Donated books can be new or gently used, and should be for elementary-aged students. You may drop off books in the boxes placed in the atrium over the next few weeks. We will make sure they get delivered to the kiddos at Mission Avenue Elementary.
