We invite our NJFEA chapters to collect and donate new or slightly used children's books to enhance literacy in their local elementary schools. We especially encourage donating books to children at low-income New Jersey schools to help prevent a summer slide in reading.
Step 1: Contact an elementary school that is near your NJFEA chapter’s high school and that is in need of children’s books. Ask if they will accept book donations.
Step 2: Collect children’s books throughout the spring (through Thursday, June 1st) in your school and community.
Step 3: Count how many books you collected and report the number and the name of the school to which your NJFEA chapter will donate the books.
Step 4: Donate the books to the school of your choosing!
Please set a high goal for your club and collect as many books as possible because the more today’s children read the better they will be in the future!
