The J.L.S. sixth, seventh, and eighth grade student councils are sponsoring a children’s book drive to support the “Children’s Book Project” of San Francisco.
Our drive will take place starting Monday, April 13, and will conclude on Wednesday, April 22.
Sixth graders may drop their donated books into the bin found in their core teacher’s classroom. Seventh and eighth grade students may drop their donated books in the bin found in their science teacher’s classroom.
All kinds of new and gently used books are welcome – board books, picture books, chapter books, Spanish-language books, books about sports, music, math and science, arts and crafts, joke books, and activity books. Textbooks and adult books cannot be used.
Your contributions will go to the “Children’s Book Project”, a Bay Area non-profit that collects and distributes over 130,000 books annually to children through public schools, homeless shelters, clinics, and community centers. For many children, your donated books will be their first ones they can call their own. Help to promote literacy in communities all around the Bay Area!
