We will be sorting donated books by grade level while at the same time weeding out books that do not fit our programs. An experienced volunteer will be working side by side with you to answer any questions. We will be serving a light dinner before we start working so we can get to know each other and to talk about the work we will be doing. Please let us know if you have any food allergies or requirements. We will try to meet them.
Texas Kids Read is a local non-profit giving free books to students in Title 1 elementary schools in Austin. We are working with Pleasant Hill, Ortega and Odom Elementary Schools. This school year we will be giving their students over 12,000 books. An average of 90% of these students live below the poverty level. Most families do not have books in the home and these books could be the only ones the children have. Texas Kids Read believes that literacy is the basis of all education.
