BENEFITING:

Tess Alfonsin

THE STORY:

Studies show that at-risk students typically lack independent reading material at home. Researchers also point out the benefits of encouraging children with much to think outside of themselves and help others in need.

Uniting gently used/new books with eager young readers is this project's main goal. Two years ago, this project was begun in my elementary school in a suburb outside of Houston in order to benefit a sister school with students much less fortunate than my own. Now in its third year, I hope to spread the idea of book donations from those who have much to those who have less across my entire school district. I hope to supplement the gently used/new books donated by students around the district with monetary donations, thereby multiplying our efforts. Won't you help me to place books in the hands of kids who don't have them?
