BENEFITING: CHAPEL HILL CARRBORO PUBLIC SCHOOL FOUNDATION
Libros Para Niños is a fundraiser and book drive. All money raised for this cause will go towards purchasing books written in the Spanish language for the Frank Porter Graham Dual-Language Magnet School's media center which is opening in August of 2013.
The Frank Porter Graham Dual-Language Magnet School is located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Students at FPG learn literacy and academic content in English and Spanish through a rigorous course of study. The goals of dual language are for students to develop proficiency in being bilingual, bi-literate and cross-cultural.
All the money I raise will go towards purchasing books for the media center of the elementary school. The goal is to raise $50,000 to purchase as many books as possible by the end of the summer.
“Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.”
