Increasing Literacy One Child at a Time
Organized by: Amy Murphy
Promoting Literacy in All Children
Some children do not have a book at home to read and cherish. Through this project, we hope to donate books to children that might otherwise not have this privilege. As a group, we plan to collect money and books to donate 100% to East Side Elementary School in Jacksonville, TX. (If higher level books are donated we will make sure they get to other students that could use them.)
Carmen Fiscal, Amy Murphy, Catherine Jones, and Shari Lanmon are currently attending Stephen F. Austin State University in pursuit of a degree in Early Childhood Education. This project will advocate for underprivileged students the opportunity to have books in their home, and improve and promote Literacy.
How can you help?
•Donate to the site. All monies will be used to buy books to be donated to the school.
•Bring books that are gently used or new to the drop off locations.
Our Project Goal: To raise awareness about literacy in young children and promote learning at home.
*We hope to donate 100 books for students.*
